In the Inspector, under Data Formatting, Format: Boolean, "Show non-zeros as"... it has a 7-character limit. It would be cool if the limit was something more like 8 characters, or even 9... or 42, or 255. Sorry, I'm getting carried away.   Examples of things you might want to display non-zeros as:   Approved - 8 characters Excellent - 9…

Proposing a new field type, Hex (Hexadecimal). Data keeps growing and FM continues to integrate with other systems that have widespread hexadecimal usage. Even native UUIDs are Hex. The overhead to index and manage a hex string as Text in FileMaker is costly and not necessary.   The benefits would be increases in speed of index and search for…

As indirectly pointed out in FMS New Schedule Type : Backup and run system-level script files, many of us compress our backups to save space on the backup drive. This has two main reasons - to be able to store more backups, and to be able to transfer the backup over network faster.   As also mentioned in the above idea, people typically use…

The Idea :   When the option "Restart page Number after each occurrence" is set, it would be great, at least as an option, if the Part "Title Header" will print instead the Header on all "first" pages.   Why ?   Generally, for documents like Invoices, when the document handle multiple pages, the first page have to print larger/different header…

The entire FM security model is amazingly capable but buried sooo deep as to be somewhat inaccessible, and visually disconnected from the target fields/layouts. etc. Much could be solved with better access points by making it - along with a more friendly UI - directly accessible from within layouts.   There are a number of idea posts on DISABLE…

Idea  The DDR is an indispensable tool for QM of FileMaker Databases. Omissions in the data covered by the DDR reflect directly on lower database quality in these areas.   The DDR should thus be extended to supply information on the following topics:   Layout View Settings (Form/List/Table, Default + Table Properties) Layout parts Tab order  …

The button bar is an excellent new feature but if you hide any of the segments, your UI can suffer horrible gaps (unusable).   Have an option that maintains the segment width, with the choice to size to the right/left or top/bottom.

Like the tab panel button bars should have justification settings so that if you are omitting a button with the hide object when function the buttons are not redistributed to the width of the bar but either shifted top/bottom/middle/full or left / right /center/full depending on orientation and possibly included absolute or fixed where a missing…

The extensions of the curl functions in 16 made almost all Web Services available using native HTTP functions.  However, some websites using various implementations of Oauth ( 1.0 and 2.0 ) utilise public/private key pairs for encryption and identification.   Examples include Xero which does OAuth 1.0 and requires OAuth of the form :   openssl…

We have 'Title footer' parts but what I find I need is a 'Last page footer' part. When creating a multi page invoice or similar I need to only show the total or terms and conditions on the last page. I currently have to compromise the look of documents by not using the bottom of each page until the last page un-hides what I want to show.
