Q&A

Q1:How can you find out the best practices or good design tips for FileMaker layouts?
A1: Watch how people, including yourself, use FileMaker. Keep an eye out for mistakes: Often mistakes are the result of faulty interface design. Train yourself to notice interfaces wherever you find them—on Web pages, in software programs, and even in the real world.
Q2:Do you need separate layouts for browsing and finding?
A2: No, but you may decide to create them. You can now specify whether each data entry field is modifiable in Browse or Find mode, so many cases in which separate layouts were necessary no longer require them.
