AFAIK, converting an FMP 11 database is the only way to get these features on a FileMaker 12 layout.
Wow -- not the answer I was expecting. Thought maybe I missed something because I can see the "line effects" in the pull-down from a FM11 file.
Mega thanks for the fast reply / comment -- very disappointing, but helps me make decision to go back to FM11. Aside from FM12 being much much sloooooooooooer than FM11. (Even w/ FM12v2 still much slower).
Hopefully, the FM dev team will come out with a few updates to improve performance and get the LINE EFFECTS back in. Not a lot time to play with the cute themes -- rather design the user interface myself. I will send a note to FM support, hopefully it will get to the right decision maker. (IMHO, this was not a good trade off.)
Mega Thanks Again ...
