Tweak for the Electric theme

Recommended Posts

WF7A    1

Greets, all:

I'm tweaking the Electric theme's CSS but can't figure out which line of code I need change when it comes to the text field so it doesn't cut off the text's descenders. (Descenders are the parts of a lowercase letter that dip below the rest of the text; the letters g, j, p, and y.) See the attached graphic to see what I mean.

As coded, if you were to click in a text box ('Focused' state) the descenders appear as they should; 'unfocused', they don't.

I tried setting the margin-top and margin-bottom for the edit_box:normal .text and text_area:normal .text to zero, but that didn't work, so what is it that needs to be changed?

TIA for your help!

Rich

Hi Rich!

Two things come to mind: 1) It appears that the text size was increased in browse mode and is too small for the field or 2) cross-platform must take into account that windows needs more space for same fonts and will produce this cut-off effect if displayed on windows but created on Mac. Also make sure that Appearance > Paragraph > Alignment is set to center (far right three icons).

Since you indicate cross-platform, I suspect number 2. Even top developers in this business do not allow enough space to allow for this difference. :^)

Thanks for the input--appreciate it.

So once again, we're beta testers; it seems to be a common theme. *ba dum dum*

Yeah, I know--don't give up my day job.

A new question pertaining to this thread:

I created a custom theme (in FileMaker Pro Advanced)--named JCC_iPad--based on the now-deprecated Electric theme and want to tweak its CSS. However, looking in the Themes folder while using Show Package Contents, I noticed my custom theme isn't listed with any of the other themes. Any ideas where custom themes are stored nowadays (in FMPA v15.x)? TIA for your replies.

Hi WF7A,

I wouldn’t have expected your FM12  theme would be in the FM15 theme Folder.

There was a lot of discussion on how to modify the css in v12 when it was released. Those bold enough were warned by others that these themes could be lost when an update of FM12 was released. The suggestion was to save your theme somewhere other then in the same folder as the ones provided to FileMaker 12.

If you still have the FileMaker 12 themes, I would check there (or an external folder if by chance the advice was followed).

You could also import that theme from the active file. You might want to review the links I just posted to http://fmforums.com/topic/101117-clear-modified-states/#comment-460254

and the follow up one.

HTH

Lee
