- There is far too little information about used themes in FileMaker
- In the themes dialog you can discover how many layouts use a theme but not WHICH layouts.
- Also, when developing and applying themes to layouts, it is far too easy to forget to save changes to themes, and end up in a situation where multiple layouts have multiple - and possibly conflicting - changes to themes.
- In the manage layouts list we can currently see what table and menu a layout is based on, but not which theme it uses.
Add the following to the manage layouts list:
- a column ‘Theme’ and
- a column indicating if the theme has been changed on that layout, for example a round button with a red triangle, as in the inspector
Something like this:
- The buttons should be the same as the buttons in layout mode, allowing the user to save or reset changes in a layout, and/or
- the buttons should have a tooltip showing the changes made
- Helps Improve UX of Layouting with Themes and Styles
- Easier management of themes
- Less errors due to forgetting to save themes
- Greater productivity
- Developing new themes
- Applying and tweaking existing themes
- Weeding out old, unwanted or - above all - broken themes
