  1. That is a BIG consideration. Please add a version number or mod to your updates. i.e. SampleMod.fmp12 works
  2. This isn't answering your question, and I have experienced similar problems, so I rarely use the system helps for FileMaker. Instead, I prefer to use the online Help because it seems to be more stable and faster. This is a link to FileMaker Pro 13 help http://fmhelp.filemaker.com/fmphelp_13/en/index.html
  3. Have you looked at the Inventory example that comes with FileMaker Pro?
  4. Please read the Private Message I sent you over 2 hours ago. Especially the Anatomy of a Good Topic.
  5. Change your membership to the Paid one at FileMaker Community https://community.filemaker.com/welcome
  6. Hi Cable, The FM Forums is not part of FileMaker Inc., and no one here works for FileMaker Inc. Our members are all volunteers donating their time, knowledge and skills to help other members overcome things they run across when developing files. To continue to express your frustration to us about this change isn't going to accomplish anything. You need to take this up with FileMaker Inc. Lee
  7. As suggested in Fitch's first Reply, why not create a Button Bar for these tools? I made a quick example file using the Bottom Navigation Part and a Button Bar that may help you salve you need. Bottom Navigation Buttons.fmp12 I should also add that the icons are by inDats Icon Manager. thank you inDats.
  8. I move it to Managing Scripts I deleted your duplicate post. Please do not double post your questions.
  9. Are you sure you are using FM Starting Points?
  10. Click this dropdown option and change it to your other version. https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/index.html#page/FMP_Help%2Ffile-options.html As I stated above, if you use one of the Features introduced in FileMaker 16 it will NOT be available in say version 15 (14, 13, 12).
  11. Change the file options, but remember any of v16 "New to this release" will not work. File >> File Options >> Open BTW, all files made in v12 through v16 have the file extension of .fmp12
  12. Did you mean when you LEAVE browse mode?
  13. Hk Keith and welcome to the FM Forums, Please read the Private Message I sent you. Please do not use generic names when referring to you file. The actual names of Fields, Table Occurrences, etc. can be helpful to us in deciphering what your need is. Lee
  14. Have you tried styles and themes? With these two design tools, you can create some amazing looking layouts. Your profile shows version 12 (which was a PIA) to modify themes, are you still using it, or have you upgraded? If you are using 14 or 15, you can do some amazing things now in FileMaker. FYI, I start my themes using the Minimalist Style, and create custom themes from them. Lee
