      Post

      Hi,

      I have just downloaded a trial of FileMarker and wanted to crete the first invoice but the price is pre set to $ while I sale my goods in £. Could someone run step by step with me who to change it. I am using the latest version on MacBook. 

      Thank you in advance for you help

          On the layout where you see this field, enter layout mode.

          Select the field by clicking it.

          On bottom of the data tab of the inspector is a section for Data formatting. This field is formatted as currency and one of the options available here will enable you to change the $ to £.

          Once you've made the change, save your change and return to browse mode. You'll need to make the same change on every layout where you find $ as the currency symbol.

                 Phil, is there a way to setup an invoice layout where you can choose a currency to use. So instead of going to the fields individually and changing them in inspector, having a drop down list to select a currency symbol to apply to that entire layout in the fields that require a currency symbol?
