    FM12 Themes - Practical Recommendations?

    BruceRobertson

      I did not attend Devcon.

       

      I know that FileMaker explicitly declares custom theme design tools to be a non-starter.

       

      Did anybody present realistic approaches to using themes in the custom layouts that we all must build for real world client applications?

          Quick tips

           

          1. EACH time you apply a theme it loads the theme into the file so use a demo file first THEN decide which one to use.

           

          2. Apply a theme to an existing layout then do one undo which gets back all your previous manual over-rides, then use the revert to style on one object at a time, with undo if you need to.

           

          Not quite your question, but a bit of useful stuff I can remember after the flight home....
