I wish for Notes menu actions to import and export bookmarks to/from Text files (likely in html or xml format).
The main reason why I want this is because in my experience bookmark.nsf breaks every once in a while. Often one has to nuke it and replace by a new one. I find it extremely tedious to have to re-create all previous bookmarks manually in that situation. Being able to export bookmarks to a text file that I can re-import into the new bookmark.nsf would greatly ease the pain.

Yes, if it could include the book folder and the tab location on the workspace so you could put user back to where they were

Administrators would be convenient to transfer the settings (tabs and their contents) to other computers when you install on them LN.

If you could export it to xml, then you could even create or edit the xml. That would be handy.

BTW, now that many of the settings have been moved to the \workspace folder, you can often clean up your corruption issues by deleting this folder instead of deleting bookmarks.nsf

@0 if the users are set to Roaming User for Domino, then you would have a current replica of bookmarks on the server. It is a best practice to setup all Notes users as roaming, even if they don't roam, just to ensure that all critical data directory files are captured (except user.dic).
