Lame templates

The templates presented on startup are very lame and do little to show the wonderous new relationship arrangements of the v7. At least one even uses repeating fields.

Can any one direct me to any downloads that show some simple multiple relationships so I can see how they are working?

Version: v6.x

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

Hi,

Last week I published a series of seven demos which are designed to showcase various new features of version 7. If you're interested, they are a free download and can be accessed at:

Also, I suspect that you might find the new 'Business Tracker' template which has been designed by FMI specifically for v7 to be worth a look. It can be found at the FileMaker site at the following link:

I would not be using ANY templates made with pre-relese versions for anything other than studying and learnin g techniques. The released version is so different from many of the pre-release ones that I would not do this. Historically this has been a bad idea, and although it might be an example of "6-think", I am still not going to do it.

I solidly agree with Steven on this, and I don't believe this is a case of '6-think'.

FWIW, the demos from my own site are designed to illustrate techniques but are *not* for re-use and are explitly marked as such (see opening and closing splash and About... details).

The Business Tracker solution is being distributed by FMI with their recommendation that it is ready to use or modify, so one would assume it's been created with and for the release version of the product.

In any case where it is not clear that a file originates from the release version of the application, caution would be my recommendation also. Such files may be good models for looking and learning, but would represent a risk in a 'production solution'.
