How to Get the Notes Bookmark Bar back in Notes 8

One of my biggest gripes about the Notes 8 client was the fact that they'd removed the bookmark bar and replaced it with the "start-menu wannabe", the Open Menu. I figured that eventually I'd work out how to get my bar back but in the meantime I was too busy to bother hunting.

This morning, while trying to find a different feature, I noticed an option called "Dock the Open List" under the View Menu. I clicked it and my faithful bookmark bar returned.

This is so simple and so usable that I figured it was worth sharing. It made my week.

You can also right click on the open button. :0

Only problem is you can't change the bookmark icon (I had made some pretty cool ones in 7.0.2 which made it easy to find the database/aka application in 8.5 that I was looking for. NOw if the database designer doesn't bother, he/she uses the same lotus icon for them all. Then you are forced to hover for a while to find the database you are looking for. I've been looking everywhere for a fix to this and can't find one. If you know of any, please let me know asap!! THANKS
