Sliding on top of images
I've been away from FileMaker for a while and just recently came back for a personal project. This means I'm using FM 11, which is pretty old now...
Anyway! I have a layout with a picture as a background and I'd like to have a graphic slide up based on the text merge field above it, but it doesn't want to slide because of the graphic it's sitting on.
Is there a way to have an object ignore a background object for sliding?
Single Layout CRM Prototype
I recently created a CRM that utilizes a single layout for all functions and features. You can view a 5 minute demo video of it here:
There is a second shorter video that demonstrates some extreme automation made possible with the CRM. You can view it here:

How to enter a new field in the layout
After moving to FMP advanced 13 I still don't know how to automatically add a new field in the current layout I work on.
Before it was simple but now I always need to drag the icon into the layout in Layout mode.
Is there a way to tell the app to ALWAYS add new fileds to the current layout
Thanks a lot
Trailing Grand Summary on footer of last page?
I'm having some difficulties with my invoice-system. When having multiple pages on print, I want to have my Trailing Grand Summary on a fixed spot. (not trailing)
Is there a possibility to have this result? If I would place my fields in the footer, they will show on every page, what is not the intention.
Have you fixed this one before OR do you have a solution at hand?
Thanks in advance!
Formatting non-active fields in list view
By Karlos Fandango
I built a database about a year ago but it wasn't required at the time, a year later and it is needed so I'm pretty rusty at present ref FMP but need to is user friendly.
All I want to do is add a slight tint to the background colour of certain fields in list view when the row is not active but try as I might I just can't seem to do so. In the active state yes, but not when the row isn't active. I have made a little video that might help the reader understand my predicament, any help would be appreciated.
