    Layout Tools Confusion

    GClare

      I hate what has happened to the layout tools from FMP12 to FMP14. The two things I find most frustrating are selecting multiple objects which used to be simple to include and exclude objects on a complex layout.

       

      But what is bugging me today is trying to apply line attributes to a simple field. I'm making the simplest little db for currency values and I want the field to have a 1pt black outline. Using Inspector in the 'Graphic' area I click on the left hand box that has always put a boundary on all four sides of a field. And it does that but it only shows up in the active field and doesn't print at all. WTF?

       

      Help

          Open Layout setup and clear the "delineate" check box.

           

          This very irritating "feature" has been with us for quite a few versions now. It has it's uses once in a great while, but some person at FileMaker inc. decided to make it the default setting on new layouts.

           

          I think that there's a product idea out there asking FileMaker to fix this one. If not, there should be!
