Summary

Can't use FTS with FM Pro 12

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v5

Operating system version

OS 10.9 Maverick

Description of the issue

I recently bought FM Pro 12 for Mac and the FTS series was included for free. I have not been able to access the demo databases Bonsai and Meetings because I can't access many of the menu commands.

Every time I try to follow the tutorial and modify the demo databases (e.g., by adding new records, trying to enter the manage scripts menu, I get the following message: This action cannot be performed because this file is not modifiable.

I really enjoy the tutorial, but it is of limited utility if I can't follow along by performing exercises on the demo databases.

Maverick isn't the culprit, since I had problems after I downloaded the software from the FileMaker site.

Thanks for your assistance
