Summary

Layout:  Selecting objects

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v2

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.8

Description of the issue

If anyone is listening and wants to help make editing easier, could you make a small change BACK to the way selecting objects was in Version 11?

I really liked not moving an object to the back just to select something in front:
  • Example:  I make a form.  The form has a border.  The form has underlines and other, unfilled, boxes within the border.  I really would like to be able to select an object within a hollow (unfilled) object without the jumping though all sorts of hoops (deciding when to use the command and command shift (multiple objects).

Designing software that requires 'work arounds' is amateur at best.
