I have connected the project which was built in laptop to the FileMaker Go in iPad and it worked. But when they are connected together,I cannot change the layout. Sometimes I could change, but sometimes I can't.
How can I solve this problem?
What method are you using to change the layout, and are you getting any error messages?
I have no error message but the layouts can't be changed in the layout dropdown when they are connected and both projects on the both devices are open.
Is your file hosted on a server, and what versions are you running on your desktop and iPad and server if you have one?
Are you seeing the layout names from the menu but it wI’ll not change when you select it? In which case are there any triggers on your layout, or any objects that could be stopping it from changing.
It may be worth adding buttons to the layout with a Go To Layout step and see if this returns an error or anything to try and debug the issue.
by "change" do you mean move from one layout to another or enter layout mode?
The drop down doesn't work and I don't see the names.
Thanks, I will check this solution.
As I said some times it doesn't have any problem and now every thing is ok!!!!!
I have different layouts and change mean going to another layout
Is it on the desktop you are not seeing the layout list, or Go, and are you on FileMaker 15 on Windows? I have experienced this type of issue once and a while on Windows, a quick restart always sorted it out. I have not seen the issue in version 16.
In pro I have this issue.version 220.127.116.11
In GO ( on my iPad) every thing is OK
I would suggest installing the latest update just to see if that fixes the issue for you, I have been trying to replicate this on my MacBook but no luck, TSGal are you aware of any issues with 16 not showing layout menu at all?
I do not see any issues reported for the Layout menu not showing (other than intentionally removed via a Custom Menu).
