Title

Copying layouts between FileMaker files

Post

Hello,

I have a live version of my FileMaker database file, which sits on a server, and I have a developer version which I'm working on. The plan is to migrate the data from live to developer when it's time to deploy a new version, and then just replace the file on the server with a new one.

But sometimes a situation arises when I have to urgently modify the live version, as there is no time for any deployment shenanigans, or my developer version is not exactly stable at the moment. The problem is, when the new version is deployed, the changes I made to the live version will be lost. So I have to make the same changes to my developer version as well, which is obviously a waste of time. Is there a way to copy a layout in one FileMaker file, and paste it into another one?
