I’m going to let a first time attendee, Patricia Kirby Gibler (of enable businesses), give her thoughts on last Tuesday’s meeting – which she’s kindly letting me reprint from an email she sent us the day after the meeting. They’re not just kind words – they’re an eloquent description of the power of FileMaker to empower users. “Turning data into relationships” indeed.
It also reinforces my belief in the power of face-to-face interaction. User groups have been around for decades upon decades now, and they might feel a little old-school to some (maybe a little rebranding is in order: PhillyFilemakerMeetup?), but IMO there’s still no substitute for people talking together in the same room.
Italics below are mine. Continue reading ‘Year End Meeting Recap’

Enjoy this guest post by our friends at Skeleton Key in St. Louis.
I used to use the keyboard shortcut in previous versions of FileMaker Pro to get to the “object info” window. One of the things I didn’t like about FileMaker Pro 11 is not being able to get to the inspector without using the mouse. Then I found the shortcut. You may have known this from the start, but if you did shame on you for not telling me
While in Layout Mode on Mac OS X you can use Command+1 to go to the Position tab of the inspector. Command+2 takes you to the Appearance tab and Command+3 takes you to the Data tab. Use Control instead of Command on Windows. Once there, the tab key will navigate you through the items on that inspector tab.
Also if you have multiple inspectors open at once (one showing each tab), then these keyboard shortcuts will switch inspectors for you instead of switching tabs on the current inspector window.
Thought you might want to know about this hidden gem!
