I build a lot of form layouts for a large orthopedic group in CT (over 100 providers). My file is called Forms Console, which some day I will go into great detail. It is actually really awesome on how it works.
Anyway I receive forms the way the doctors want them in either Word format or PDF. Neither of which copy and paste cleanly in the layout. They always change format. So I build them from scratch all the time.
My idea is, I think it would be really cool if you could right in the layout and add a new data field to the manage data without having to open the Manage Database. It would also be neat if you could add a new value list the same way with the ability to choose from the options of checkbox, radio button or drop down lit. (not a fan op the pop menu)
I do not know of any other software that has this capability and think this would put FileMaker leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.
Now practicing in versions 13-17
