      Indented Field Entries

      Post

           I discovered this while working with the Starter Solution for FMP12 named Contacts.  When you look at the entries in the fields, they are indented a couple of spaces (in normal FMP fields the text starts at the edge of the field unless it is centered).  I like the look of this indenting and so I was trying to figure out how it was done.  I can find no adjustment in the Inspector window or anywhere else in the program.

           So, I called FileMaker Support and asked them how it was done.  The answer I got was, it is in the Theme that is applied!  Well, I've changed the theme and it has no effect.  If I add a field in the normal way it is not indented.  However, if I copy and paste a field and assign a newly created field to it, it is indented.

           Has anyone else run into this?  Does anyone know how it is done?

               The default indention is based on the selected theme.  You can indent each field from the inspector by clicking the appearance tab.   I would set units to pt (points) then enter the number of points to indent.  The will still be different based on the theme you have selected.
