How do I ... copy Lotus Notes SmartIcons (with formulas ) to another computer running Notes?

Every time I move to an new client company I need to rebuild my Lotus Smarticons. Is there a better way?
I currently keep the formulae in a text document so can copy & paste from my memory stick into new SmartIcon buttons. I often forget to keep this uptodate. The icons are also pretty limited.

Add a smart icon to your default smart icon group that is a Macro Button that goes straight to the Notes remote console.

Choose "File|Preferences|smart Icon Settings". Scroll to the bottom of the list on the left hand side & pick a "Macro Button" that represents the remote console for you. Drag it to the right hand side where you want it to show amongst the othe smart icons. Once on the right hand side (& with the new icon still highlighted), choose "Edit Icon", in the description type "Rem Console" & then choose the Formula button. Choose "Add Command" button & add "AdminRemoteConsole" to the window. Select "OK", "Done" & then "OK" to save the new icon set. Note that the default set is "Universal" & this will be overwritten with any Lotus Notes Upgrades; to avoid overwriting, save to a new icon set name. This works in 4.x, as well as, 5.x clients, although it only brings up the 4.x client interface in 5.x

I hope this helps !

I think that you can copy the smart-icon directory.

have not done this in a while..

ALso it looks like this is being phased out in favor of the R8 type development.


I hope this helps !

I believe in R6 they moved the smarticons (Toolbars) to the bookmark.nsf. Take a look at this thread

 I can see links to dbs on my desktop or bookmark bar buit not Smarticons.

SysExpert:
The links to deploying a set of Smarticons looks ideal. I've not time to pursue this right now but it looks good
