Now that you’ve decided to update your layouts to a modern theme in FileMaker, there are a few things you might want to do at the same time. Since you’re already touching every layout in your solution, why not take advantage of some of the new features in FileMaker 14? It makes sense to get the most bang for your buck. Here are…drumroll please…Five Things New in FileMaker 14 That Will Improve Your Interfaces (in no particular order):
Her top 5? Easy:
- Hidden scroll bars
- Button bars
- Top Navigation part
- Placeholder text
- Custom Theme Colours
All worthy choices. Bet there are other worthy candidates.
My favorites include:
- Popovers (yes, even on old (.fp3) upgraded solutions
- Sliders in popovers
- Conditional hiding
All three claim back valuable real estate from the Classic Theme, something most users find ver useful. And it doesn’t cost a fortune to do it.
