Sorting - seeing existing order

Recommended Posts

Hope this is the right forum... In FileMaker 6 through 9... if one has existing Sorts that are based on relationships, it makes the existing Sort names in the left side sort box too long to read what they are. Is there someway to see the existing Sort names, without having to redo the entire Sort order? The Sort display box is too short to display long names.. and there's no horizontal scroll bar. I hope this is just me missing something and not such an oversight in the program that's not been corrected. Thanks in advance!

No, I'm afraid.

IIRC there used to be a hack floating around to widen the dialog boxes in older versions of FMP (might have been 6 and earlier) but I know of nothing for FMP 7 and later.

I like keeping table names short to avoid the problem.

I see the same problem in 9 - and don't see an answer here - in both export and sort dialog boxes, PC users can't view entire table names. Does anyone know of a work-around?
