Hi All, I'm new in filemaker, and english is not my native language so please bear with me


Currently i just finished tutorial from guy stevens ( and started to built for my own.

There are several things that need to ask:


1.  To my understand, filemaker is not like Fox Pro that allowed people to compile into standalone application (cmiiw).

But is there a way to make it less like document and make it more like application? I meant, to use the database app that we already built with filemaker we need to open it with filemaker application, after that we still need to press "exit-layout". Can (at least) when we double click the filemaker file, itu will open in "layout-mode" instead of "edit-mode"?


2. I need to put signature (scan file) to my invoice, can we do that? I manage to make pull down choices of my employee names, but the name need to link to spesific signature file so when i print the invoice it will show the signature file instead of just the name.
