When you are using table view and you want to add fields, they get added to the bottom of the list. This is not intuitive. I'm choosing something which means that it has importance which means I'm going to want to see it readily, which if there are lots of fields, you are using a small screen etc mean that you have to manually move it to the top…
Idea  FileMaker supports exporting + importing of XML files using  XSLT Version 1.0. Using plugins (e.g. BaseElements) XSLT 1.0 transformation functions are also available in calculations.   XSLT Version 1.0 is great but it is now 16 17 years old and (much of) the world has moved on to XSLT Version 2.0 - and for VERY good reasons - the foremost…
I would like to see more graph styles, more granular control of formatting in native graphs, and more forms of graphing. It would also be nice to have interactive graphs.

Summary   A complete overhaul of the old import dialogue and feature set is necessary. Importing data is one of the most important tasks of working with FileMaker, but 90% of our customers have trouble working with the import dialogue as it is.   Detail   The import dialogue should feature:   not showing fields in which you can´t import at…
It would be nice to have a function named GetSortOrder() that would return the sort order of the current found set. It's apparent that this information is available, as a user can sort a found set, and if they sort it again, the previous sort order appears. This function would return that sort order in a method that makes this useful for…
