Macintosh & Windows
1] To add spacing and separators within a field formatted as check boxes, radio buttons or as a pop-up list; or to add a separator to the scripts/layouts menu:
Add a blank line between check boxes or radio buttons in a field, add a blank line between each value in the value list. To add a separator (a line of dashes) between two script names in the Scripts menu, or between check boxes or radio buttons, type a single hyphen as a script name or value list item. To add a separator between Layouts, create a blank layout, reorder it to the desired position, then change the name of the Layout to a dash character.
2] To select multiple entries in a field formatted as a pop-up menu or radio buttons:
Hold the shift key as you click the radio buttons or make choices from a pop-up menu. You can then select multiple radio button items, or deselect any previously selected item.
3] To change a field on a layout to a different field:
Double-clicking a field on a layout brings up the New Field dialog box and allows redefinition of a field. This changes the field but retains the formatting.
4] Exporting a printed file (such as a report):
FileMaker Pro supports copying a previewed page to the clipboard by using "Copy" in the Preview mode. This places a graphic of the current page on the clipboard which can be pasted into another program.
5] Coloring layout parts.
FileMaker allows you to fill an entire layout part with a background color. To fill a layout part, go to the Layout mode, click once on the part label to select it, then choose a fill color from the fill palette.
6] Formatting Popup menu.
Control-click on a field (Mac) or right-click on a field (Windows) to display a popup menu to select various options from the Format menu.
1] For dual screen users, to force a window to resize to the main screen (menu bar screen) instead of the current screen:
Hold down the option key when clicking the resize box. The window will be fully resized to fit in the menu bar screen.
