      Creating a field in Filemaker 11

      Post

      I am a newcomer to Filemaker 11 and have been learning from an article on using this software.

      I did not understand the following paragraph regarding positioning a field on a layout.

      "After creating a new field using Manage>Database then going into Edit Layout the new field appears at the bottom of the layout, below the Membership info tab panel. Depending on the size of your screen, you may need to scroll down to see it."

      I scrolled forever and never seen it yet.

      Previously to that I had read that after creating a new field, in Layout mode you dragged a field onto the layout using the Field tool from the status bar then selected your new field from the Specify Field dialog box.

      Would someone explain if that first paragraph is correct?

      Many thanks
