Unhide Notes database design

To show or hide the database design, we need a template, but if the template is no longer available, we have no way to see the design.

We have been using Notes for almost 20 years, and the developer hid the design of the old database in the past, so we are currently unable to see the design and modify the database.

We would like you to add a function to easily switch between displaying and hiding the design.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    I agree with the previous comment. Hiding the design of a database and deleting (or losing) the template is like encrypting a document and then deleting (or losing) the key needed for decryption. It's something that can really only be prevented by organizational measures like implementing an effective backup strategy, not by technology.

    Annoying, I agree. But unhiding is what this function prohibits. So, this should not be realised.
