SNIPTo avoid using patterns (which have been deprecated in FileMaker Pro 12) and to choose a color coding system that makes them easily distinguished from each other. This includes the following elements: Major Grid Lines = #AAAAAA Minor Grid Lines = #BBBBBB Page Break Indicator = #666666 Part Boundaries = #C6C6C6 Dynamic Guides = #1E38F6 Local Guides = #1E38F6 Global Guides = #FF3DF7 Print Column Lines = #666666 Bottom Edge Of Layout = #666666 Page Margins (when enabled) = #C6C6C6 Locked Guides = #676767 FileMaker Pro 12 DOES NOT provide a method to configure the different colors available in the user interface.
The "New Grid" is a replacement for the FileMaker Pro 11 Grid Lines feature. The "New Grid" provides both visual changes and some functionality changes.
FileMaker Pro 11 had a confusing origin for the grid and ruler. (0,0) is positioned at the top-left corner of the paper instead of the top-left corner of the top-most part in the layout itself. This caused a discrepancy between the coordinates that showed up in the Inspector and in the grid / ruler.
This change should only impact the grid - as the true object logic location and bounds as shown in the Inspector or returned by "GetLayoutObjectAttributes()" have not been altered. However, when Page Margins are enabled, the grid/ruler origin point remains at the top-left of the topmost part, but the rulers have shifted that point by the appropriate the physical margin settings as in FileMaker Pro 11. The main implication of this change is that customers modeling layouts based on FileMaker Pro 11 paper forms will need to measure distances from the top-left corner of the printable area rather than the corner of the paper.
