Can I edit my FM Pro script on my FM GO (iPad)
Wanting to take my work on the road, and I can't seem to find a button to edit script and edit layouts. Is this possible?
It is not possible. You cannot design databases using FM GO, It requires FM Pro or FM Advanced to make design changes.
Not inexpensive, but I solved this problem by getting a laptop and then setting up FMS on a Mac Mini at my office.
I routinely work from a LapTop and, during a design and testing session, host the database from my laptop while accessing the file from my iOS device. This is a quick and easy way to verify layouts and test scripts without having to copy a file back and forth or upload it to a server.
Once I have the latest version up and working, I then move the file to the desired location--typically by using Drop Box to copy the file wirelessly from my Laptop to my iPhone. (And I can use the same method to copy a file back to the Drop Box folder on my Laptop when I next want to play with the file's design.)
