FileMaker Icons

Would really appreciate if there was an easy way to differentiate between the versions of FileMaker. On my desktop I need to keep 11, 12 and now 13 available, so I have made my own custom icons and can use my Macintosh Dock to differentiate the one that's running.


On the mobile platform, it's not so easy. I just spent an hour trying to figure out why a hide property and a popover button were not working and then I realized that FM-Go 12 had launched on my iPhone when I tapped on a "profile" that was created with the FileMaker iOS App Maker. Then I remembered why the virtual keyboard was not behaving as expected and why the list views were showing the current record indicator when it was not expected. Duh! After a little while, I am learning that the FIle Browser looks different.


It would be very helpful to have a visual indication of the app version. Just sayin' .....



The attached icon can be substituted for the regular one by using copy/paste in GetInfo.
