classic no longer exist under V14 (see 'changes' section from the Filemaker Help).
existing files with classic theme will still show that theme, but it's no longer there for selecting
Thank you for your post.
The answer from "markus schneider" is correct (thank you!). The Classic Theme has been removed from FileMaker Pro 14. For more information about what has been removed and what has been deprecated in FileMaker Pro 14, see Knowledge Base Article #14399 at:
tds - If you have FileMaker 12 or 13, you can open the DB in that, and change the theme to Classic. The change will stick when you reopen the DB in 14.
FileMaker, if you're listening, this is a real pain. Please restore the Classic theme.
I stopped using FileMaker since version 12. Now I am back and started using Version 14. Did not release that the Classic Theme was removed. I tried saving the Classic Theme with no luck. Is there a way to do so?
I like using the Classic Theme for WebDirect publishing, it is clean and simple.
Thanks for your response.
I believe you could save it as a new theme.
dealing with themes is much improved under V14 (was under V13 as well). So, one can create an own theme that uses really less resources, is faster, has more display-options, etc.
'Classic' is done - I suggest to check out the new possibillities and study the methods for dealing with themes. Once, one has hisher own theme (or one of the existing ones - if it fits the needs/wishs), working with layouts is quite comfortable
