Just red the FileMaker 17 deprecated features and as always, it worth a check.
So this year i was particularly surprised by this one :
- Container field option: “Store only a reference to the file”
Cannot understand that : there are example where it still is the best choice.
For instance, if the files have intensive life, frequently modified by their original app, storing a reference IS useful.
I see this announcement as if Apple was thinking to remove Aliases in future macOS or Microsoft shortcuts in Windows.
So beware !
