I have no idea how you are able to do that without any additional design components in the database at all. Amazing. Assumingly you could allow me to set any db filename or replica id in the notes.ini to have it auto processed so long as the RT field names were what you expected such as "Body".?

As a matter of fact, you can, and you don't even need to use the same RT field names. You just specify the name of a template on the server, and it will auto-recognize the rich text fields that are set to Best Fit for OS, whatever their names might be and whatever forms they might be on. That way, you can use it with your own Xpage template discussion or pretty much anything that uses the Dojo editor. Or rather, I should say that that is how it will work. I am still working on some of the features, and trying to figure out how to watch for things like WebQuerySave agents that might need to be accounted for.

Fantastic . How far back do you think you can support it for?

@Gabriella - That remains to be seen. My guess is I'll go back to ND6, as I think that is when Best Fit for OS became an option. I'll probably focus most on ND7 and higher. If there are technical difficulties with earlier versions, that might change, so no promises yet.

Ben - This is Great !! Of course wouldn't you know that after talking to you about CoExEdit for at least 3 years I finally got around to implementing it this week and now you make it 100% easier !! Just my luck
