Checking the access log of www.cubetoon.com today I recognized that still a lot of people are getting linked to me searching for the dubious error message ‘#0C:03’ that appears when the anchor of a layer is placed within a table when designing a form using the Domino Designer. Additional the design elements placed within the layer do not show up when using the form in Lotus Notes.
In my experience the error only emerged with Lotus Notes/Domino Designer version 6.5.5 (everything had been fine as far as version 6.5.4). Obviously the only workaround is to open the form either with a prior or later release of the Domino Designer, cut the anchor out of the table and paste it somewhere else on the form, outside of any table cell.
I know that this might spoil the intention behind deliberately placing the element to this place for reasons like tab order but this is really the only workaround I know and also the only response I got back from IBM.
Would be happy to receive some feedback whether the same issue appears in later Notes 6.5.x versions since I straight jumped to version 7.0.2 and did not need to bother any more.
