Oke this is strange, it was the resolution.
But i got the info on the FM artikel
There was mention : Hight iPad landscape 737 pix with toolbar and statusbar off. But it is only 660 pix max.
The Yellow Line in the stencil info in FMP it self. I always thought that the yellow line was the amount with statusbar and toolbar on.
So what are the sizes i can use. Because the new iPad Pro 10,5" has also other dimensions.
Oke, it drives me crazy. When i use the information of the website of FM i get this :
I Used the Footer section on the bottom.
All i want is a full use of the iPad screen.
But how to use the section on the iPad that is white under the footer. Now the interface is fixed, if i assign more pix to any section the interface gets movable ..

There is a newer version of the KB articular you are using, may have more up to date numbers to help Using Screen Stencils to design iOS friendly layouts using FileMaker Pro 14 or higher | FileMaker
I generally design to the smallest device screen size and then apply anchoring to get rid of the scrolling and grey spaces. for an iPad I generally go for w.688 h.635 including top and bottom nav parts and then anchor an some objects to the bottom and right, this covers portrait and landscape nicely.
Also if you want the iPad Pro 10.5 screen sizes, check out this post: Re: What is the new iPad pro 10.5 screen size in points?
Hope this helps
Thxs, will try these new numbers. But strange i could not find this when i searched ....
Yeah, the old version always shows first in a google search:( so I have bookmarked it for reference.
As Orlando has said, designing for smallest iPad screen size and using auto-sizing anchoring works well... See attached sample that uses your nav part sizes etc and note how the anchoring is set up, and also that it works just as well in portrait or landscape as the layout design as you see it in Layout Mode in FileMaker Pro is more square shaped to fit either way...
I've also added a tab panel and related data portal so you can see how they might work in such an arrangement....
Note also the 'startup' script which hides toolbar, prevents layout zooming etc when using FileMaker Go
Finally, make sure you are using the most up to date version of FileMaker Go 16 (16.0.2) as it fixes some weirdness from previous versions :-)
Of course, if you know that your solution will only, for example, be used on a 12 inch iPad in landscape mode, then you can design exclusively for that and take advantage of the larger screen etc, and furthermore if you need to design for multiple sizes you can also use Get(ScreenWidth) and Get(ScreenHeight) script steps to determine which layouts to display depending on device and so on, and design the layouts accordingly....
