    Loading a file without causing initial layout to load

      Loading a file without causing initial layout to load

      Post

      My understanding is that if I have a problem with a particular layout that's set to load when the file loads (or a script that's set to go off when the file loads), all I have to do is hold the Shift key down while I chose File Open. Correct me if I'm wrong about this.

       

      What I see when I do this is a prompt that shows my name, and asks for a password. But I never set a password for this or any Filemaker database. At least not so far, anyway. If I just hit Enter, it tells me the password is wrong. Is there a default password I should be aware of?

          No. To unfire an opener script you can try to hold the ESC key.

          The SHIFT key let you change the logger, showing as default Account Name the User Name.
          So, if you never set a password, Account = User Name and pwd = blank is a wrong password.
          The default password to log is: Account = Admin and pwd = blank.
