There are a host of good enhancements in 8.5.3. But one that is worth it’s weight in gold is the ability to review, set or clear the Prohibit Design Refresh setting on all design elements in an application in one go. From Domino Designer, just right-click on the application and select Application -> Set Prohibit Refresh Property…

Prohibit Refresh Menu

This brings up a dialog of all design elements, grouped under design element type, allowing you to quickly and easily identify any refresh prohibited design elements prior to migration, and amend accordingly.

A small but extremely powerful addition which makes installing at least one Domino Designer client a must for anyone who has ever been bitten by the prohibit design refresh setting.
