Design FileMaker Go 13 for iPad layouts | infografix | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

For iOS  I use differents patterns to design my layouts : Single View (all the content is in one body – or column) the content just stretch on the rotation. This pattern is used on iPhone mostly.

For iPad I use 2 other patterns : the Split View (in landscape mode an additional area is displayed) and the 3 Panes View (additional content are displayed in portrait and landscape mode)

How to Automate FileMaker Server Fail-Over on the Mac | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
What I realized during this process was FileMaker Server running on top of a Mac Mini Server is a pretty big single point of failure. Of course I have FMServer doing regular backups but when confronted with the question: What is my recourse when the host running FM Server dies? I need automated filemaker failover for the mac.

FileMaker Go and iOS 8 compatibility | FileMaker

iPad and iPhone

  1. Viewing a non-FileMaker Pro file (PDF, CSV, etc.) and attempting to Print from the Share menu will crash FileMaker Go.
  2. In List or Table View, tapping into an empty field that has a OnObjectKeystroke script trigger, shows the text scrolled partially out of view.
  3. The re-authenticate dialog will not display the keyboard if and only if the keyboard was initially dismissed, switched to another application, and then switching back where re-authentication is required. Tapping into the field will then re-display the keyboard.
  4. Transferring a file targeting FileMaker Go to open the file will not open the file, but it will store the file to the iOS device.
  5. Fields formatted for either "Numeric 10-key", "Number", or "Phone" keyboard will not provide audible feedback for each key tap.

Multi-Solution Navigation - ISO FileMaker Magazine

Every profession has tips, tricks and tools for getting things done. The same holds true for FileMaker Pro. Over my many years of development, I’ve created a variety of tools and methods for making things easier on myself. One of those methods is to use FileMaker itself to manage navigation within my FileMaker solutions. This video is about a tool which I use that handles the display and opening of layouts within a FileMaker solution. In fact, it can quite easily handle the navigation of many solutions because it itself is a solution for solutions. If you deal with one single solution or many different solutions, then I can’t think of a better way to manage this situation other than within FileMaker itself!

I needed a simple way to visualize the new FileMaker 13 themes and learn more about them. So I created a demo file as a design palette. This demo file explores each theme and visually shows the details of each layout object.
