In the effort to 'brand' symphony, the yellow icons are so similar folks can't tell one from next. Please at least color the inside of the symphony Icons so they are more intuative.
Also since The names are long, and all start with "Lotus Symphony ... " the ... gets ...
For many users, It's easier to move from Office 2000/2003 to Symphony than to Office 2007, but it would be almost transparent if IBM made an optional menu (File, Edit, etc) that mimicked the Office 2000/2003 menu structure. Corel does this with WordPerfect Workspace Manager, and it's very useful. Link
The Symphony apps all launch with right-docked property boxes open. Don't want them open? Maybe 'cause you're not on a 3000x2600 screen like most IBM people appear to have? Well, close them then. Every. Single. Time. There is no preference. There is no memory of previous choice. There is only ...
The labels on the desktop icons on Windows XP get cut off, making it hard to tell the Symphony applications apart. This is compounded by icons that are of such muted colors they are hard to tell apart visually. When paired with the Notes 8 icons it's a wash of ...
I would like to see a complete overhaul of the Symphony Programability Model:
1. we need a way in Symphony to create template and file code, much like VBA is used in Office. It needs to be code that executes when a document is opened or a new document ...
From the Save dialog, Save a file directly into a Notes database. (similar behavior to using the Quickr Connectors).
Add mail merge feature to Lotus Documents. Sources for the mail merge need to be Notes Applications (especially address books), Lotus Spreadsheets, Excel to start with.

OpenOffice (not just ODF)
A way to integrate "com.ibm.symphony.javaapi" in server-side agents (java/lotusscript).
Nothing I use more often when manipulating data but just don't see it in Symphony. Openoffice has it as a plugin or built-in.
If I have missedthe plugin or an option, let me know but if not, please add this.
To ensure Symphony Presentations always look first class, provide an online resource containing a large collection of predefined templates not unlike the on-line libraries I can access with MS Office. Also provide the integrated link to dowload these templates from within the product.
This is a plea for you to transfer the Smartsuite read functionality from Symphony 1.3 into Symphony 3. This is most important to all SmartSuite users - of which I believe there are many, me amongst them .... To be honest I'm saddened it was removed as part of the ...
Need to add ability to retrieve external data to Lotus Spreadsheets. Data sources should be at least Notes Applications, and any ODBC data source.
The big problem in reading MS office products in Symphony (or Open Office) is the font replacement. This is especially true when an unusual font was used in the original MS document. Reading MS Office documents is a fact of life; so this is crucial. Example; i opened up an ...
At the moment the only way I have found to open an existing Symphony document, presetation etc. from the Notes client workspace is to first select "Open Lotus Symphony xxx". Only then does the Recent Files option appear in the File menu. I think it would be much easier to ...

Would it not be cool if from in a Symphony document save as also provided the option to save directo to a lotus database.
