    Keyboard Shortcuts

    survivortranscriber

      I need a menu option granting me the ability to customize keyboard shortcuts for FileMaker Pro 11.

       

       

       

      What is the solution?

          Keyboard shortcuts are in Manage Custom Menus, for which you need FileMaker Pro Advanced.

              I'm curious to know if FileMaker offers upgrade options with a previous version's registration code.

              Any likliness of this?

                I know that you can get upgrade pricing from recent versions to the current version, but AFAIK, there isn't an upgrade path from Pro to Pro Advanced.

                 

                If you're doing anything remotely serious as a developer, though, I think you'll find that Advanced is well worth the additional cost. In addition to being able to customize menus, you get a Data Viewer, Script Debugger and the ability to create a Database Design report, among other things, and all of these are huge advantages when developing and troubleshooting.
