Filemaker Advanced 10

 

Hi all,

 

despite knowing the answer (I think)  can I do ANYTHING to the status area other then dragging and dropping the Filemaker icons?

 

Since the Status Area takes up so much screen space, the obvious answer is to turn it off.  But, then I don't get that beautiful book icon and scroller for moving between records. For me, this is the ONLY reason to use the Status Area in browse mode in a runtime solution.

 

I would love to be able to:

 

     change the status area color

     arrange my own icons on the area

     use the book icon directly on a layout.

 

It's all wishful thinking, right???

 

Hugh
