    Audio playback takes up whole screen on iPad



      Audio playback takes up whole screen on iPad


      I was using Bento to hold a memo field on a record so that i could dictate audio notes.

      When I played it back the audio player was contained in the memo field (just below a text field) and i could pause and play at the same time as i would type up the transcript of what I had recorded.

      I am now using Filemaker pro and upgraded to V12 (with Filemaker Go 12) in the hope that I could do the same thing, but when I play back the recorded message it takes up the whole screen on the iPad and I am unable to go back to the main screen to type into the text field without losing the audio.

      Can anyone tell me how I can get Filemaker Go to perform the same task as Bento's Memo fields.

          Although Bento allows you to play audio files in the background, At this time, FileMaker Go cannot.  The Container field switches to full screen.

          I recommend that you enter this feature request into our Feature Requests web form at:


          The entires into this web form are automatically populated in a database file that is monitored and read by Development and Product Management, where the suggestions are then discussed and considered for possible inclusion in a future release.  Be sure to mention how this works in Bento and provide the same example why you need this.  Although I could copy your post into the web form, there are a couple of questions asked that only you can answer.
