  1. Mac mini is hosting FMS10 on OSX server. Issue is with installation of FM10 on to a new MacBook Pro with OS 10.8 After installing FM10 on the MacBook Could not see the host so I assumed it was the issue with the date/time not matching. So I uninstalled FM10 set the date to before Sept 2008 (april 2002) then reinstalled FM10. Now I see the host but not the hosted files. After looking at my old notes I see that I should have deleted the Perfs file. My instructions for deleting the perfs file do not match the new OS 10.8 (Library/Preferences/ Filemaker perfs). Nothing matches Filemaker in the preferences folder. Any one know what the name of the file is that needs to be deleted in the new system’s preference folder or what should be done to see the hosted files? Thank you so much for your help on this.
  2. Hello, my ad-hoc steering committee... I'm shortly going to be tackling allowing an override of the default sort order. Once implemented, there would be a preference to override the default sort order for all(-ish) queries to sort alphabetically, rather than by export / creation order. I would love to get some feedback on this idea, in particular that I'm not either targeting too narrowly or too broadly. My thought is that this could be best implemented using 3 checkboxes. Sort almost everything alphabetically by default Sort Layouts alphabetically by default Sort Scripts alphabetically by default I think that for most users, sorting fields, TOs, references, etc by name by default will not cause a problem. Most of them won't even need a preference for that. They'd like it always on. I have, however, identified users that would like to retain general access to the imported sort order. I've identified Scripts and Layouts as two elements that very commonly are manually ordered. Most developers will group similar layouts and scripts, even assuming that they have a naming convention that would allow for meaningful interaction with these elements (say, Scripts) alphabetically. I also don't think there's any value to sorting Layout Objects in anything other than import order (by default), as the import order is a parent-child aware z-order. I'm also thinking that this will necessitate the addition of a column in the Results pane that stores the creation / import ordinal so that you have the ability to restore that order (or reverse that order) if necessary for a single query. Questions: Can you think of any other elements within FileMaker whose creation / manual order is far more important than their alphabetical order? This is oft requested enough that I'm considering changing the first checkbox (sort most items alphabetically) to ON by default. I think I will have fewer users asking how to change it back than I currently have users asking how to turn it on. Thoughts? While neither the Hierarchy Browser nor the Columnar Browser have a base implementation for overriding the sort order on an area by area basis, I might try to invent one if there's huge desire for it. I still that most users will never tweak the default, but I'm willing to be proven wrong. In a fever-dream, I thought that instead of adding checkboxes to the preferences, I would add menu items that could be toggled on and off. This only becomes of use if somebody sees being able to override this on a document-by-document basis, and really regularly, as a critical requirement. If this is you, I'd like to hear from you. I'm pretty sure that the overwhelming majority of users will turn it on, and never mess with it. Most will never even override that default sort to use the new import ordinal column. Any other thoughts or ideas related to this topic would be most appreciated. Thank you very much, Dave Ramsey
