View larger What’s New in FileMaker Pro 14 FileMaker Pro 14 is a single software package that serves two fundamentally different types of people: users and developers. Users are the folks who need a database to help them organize and manage the data they work with in order to do their jobs. Developers create the databases that users use. No matter which category you’re in (and lots of people fall into both categories, sometimes popping back and forth dozens of times a day), you’ll find that FileMaker doesn’t play favorites. The features you need for both roles are equally accessible. FileMaker Pro 14 introduces a boatload of new features to make database creation more powerful and efficient. Here are the most notable items you learn about in this book: - The Script Workspace is a fundamentally new way to create scripts. The endless clicking and scrolling has been replaced with quick and efficient composing and editing from the keyboard. You can now work on multiple scripts in the Script Workspace’s tabs, and the script steps are color-coded for better readability. - Calculation editing also has a new look and feel. Extensive use of predictive type suggests functions as you start to type them. Better still, it offers to fill in the names of your fields as you start to type them, too. - Buttons can now have embedded icons along with, or instead of, text. You can also create Button Bars—single layout objects comprised of several independently clickable areas. - Navigation parts are ideal spots for those Button Bars. These non-printing parts remain anchored to the top and bottom of the FileMaker window regardless of how much scrolling takes place in between. - Placeholder text offers a new way to label your fields. The text appears when the field is empty, but disappears as soon as some information has been entered. - Security gets a streamlined interface with easy access to the most frequently used options and all the more complicated stuff just a step away. - The improved color palette gives a leg up to the chromatically challenged with a wider range of colors, collections of hues that work well together, and the ability to paste hexadecimal color values right into the palette. - Twelve new or improved script steps including Refresh Portal to update related data in a portal without having to update the whole screen, and Set Allowed Orientations to protect your finely crafted iOS solutions from undesired screen rotations. - Twelve new or improved functions bring more control over touchscreen keyboard and information about the state of the improved Audio/Visual player. - New script triggers aimed at improving the user experience on iOS. - Gesture support comes to Windows 8 touchscreen users.
