Lotus Notes Data on Mac OS X Lion

Lotus Notes Data on Mac OS X Lion

So, I upgraded to Mac OS X Lion the other day. Took a while to get used to the user interface, but I'm getting there.

As I use Lotus Notes (currently version 8.5.2) on the Mac as well as in multiple VMWares, I do copy and paste my ID file quite a bit.

So, when I changed my Notes password I went to look for my Lotus Notes Data directory under:
Home > Library > Application Support > Lotus Notes Data.

To my surprise, the Library directory did not seem to exist.
So I went on a hunt!

It turns out the Library directory is still there, but hidden.
The way to get to that directory is the following...
1. Make sure your in the Finder app;
2. Select Go in the top bar;
3. Hold down the Option key (alt), and the Library directory shall magically appear.
