Fixed vertical zone in List View

Fixed vertical zone in List View | FileMaker News | Scoop.it
This little technique show how we can exploit the native Popover-object to
obtain a fixed zone on your list-layout.

It comes down to placing a Popoverbutton on the outer-right side of your

popover panel.

 

MENTION: Thank you Koen Van Hulle (@Koenvanhulle) for the script trigger
suggestion and Joel Shapiro (@jsfmp) for your UI remarks.
