Creating a simple invoice layout for printing FMP12


Hello- I know, I know... this is pretty basic, but I'm new from Bento so I'm still fumbling around in FMP (but I really love it!).

I am just trying to create a really basic invoice layout to be printed. When I created the fields and selected the layout, FMP gave me the choice of the built in layouts. I chose Silver since this is the layout style of the rest of my DB.

But when I dropped into design mode, it clearly isn't for printing and all the rulers are in PT which I don't really know what to do with.

So I guess, here are my questions:

- How do I get to a white background with just the fields?

- How do I convery my ruller to Inches so I can set it to 8.5 x 11

Sorry for the super basic question. Why did FM remove that super cool small business toolkit that was available in 11. I'm using 12 and miss that old tool kit. THAT WAS AWESOME!
