Setting Format Defaults

Default formats apply to fields and objects across the entire database. (To set attributes for individual fields and objects, see Formatting Fields or Objects, on page 189.) At times, you may want to set format defaults up front to save you the bother of formatting every time you create a new field. Other times, setting formats field by field may be exactly what you want to do. FileMaker, as usual, lets you do either.

Setting some basic database-wide defaults early on, however, gives you a foundation to build on. As you work along and find you want to change the format for an individual field or object differently, you can then use specific choices within the Format menu (Figure 12.3).
