Selecting objects, guides, open script

Question asked by GaryVogt on Sep 12, 2012


Selecting objects, guides, open script


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

iMac OSX 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Selecting Objects. Thanks for the note on how to select objects.  IT's still a major fault in this version if you ask me. I intentionally create outlines with no fill just so I can select what is inside without any hassle.  Seriously, this along turns me off to this version.

Guides.  I once had two pink guides to locate the objects.  One has gone missing and it doesn't want to come back in any of my over 300 different FileMaker files.  Before I could command T and turn them off and on.  If I lost one, turning them off and back on would find it in the middle of the page.  Not any more.  Really a bad feature.

Open Script.  Long ago there was a script I could make or modify that, upon opening one of my files, it would run automatically.  Not anymore.  Help doesn't help.  No info in the program either.  What happens if I want to, say, open a file and have it resize, go to a specific layout, and perform other operations?

This version really sucks the big one.
