I'm very new here to FileMaker.


I'm confused by something.

When I add a new field, I get the following choices. I want to know why other choices aren't there. Choices shown down in the second screenshot below.


Why aren't they all in that first screen? Why is a checkbox, a radio button, a whatever, as an object on a form, different than a text field? They're both perfectly legitimate things to be on a form. I find this very confusing, and, very un-Apple like.
