      "Recent Files" list issues

      Post

      After using and programming MS Access for many years, I'm converting to FileMaker due to migrating to a Mac. So far, I've found FileMaker Pro 10 to be very powerful. I am, however, having several issues with the Recent Files feature. First, it has accumulated multiple, apparently identical entries for the same file. Second, I cannot clear the list of test databases that I have deleted. I have not found a way to do that short of editing the Preferences file. I have found it but don't want to start hacking away without a clear understanding of where and what to cut. I strongly prefer not to delete the entire prefs file and have to rebuild all my other preferences. 

       

      Recommendations:

      1. FileMaker Pro should have the ability to show the paths of files on the Recent Files list.

      2. FileMaker Pro should have a button, "Clear Recent Files List".

       

      Thank you,
