What people are saying about 17 Practical FileMaker Secrets

Thank you for the great collection of FileMaker tips.
I have been developing in FileMaker for over 20 years, but managed to find one new useful tip (the shift-Enter one). It doesn’t matter if you know the other 17, that one tip you learn can save you a lot over time!
It’s also a great learning resource for new team members and a refresher for everyone else. We sometimes forget things we knew and lose out as a result.

As an inhouse Filemaker developer, a big part of my learning is finding inspiration & tips on the web. For that uLearnIT is great – just got some very useful tips to improve my daily work!

Tips 11 and 18 (yes 18) are wonderful (and dangerous)

    Thank you for the 17 Practical FileMaker Secrets. I was surprised and happy that I already know about, and am mostly using about 15 of them. A couple of welcome surprises though – I knew about the the trick involving quote marks, but I hadn’t discovered that it also extends to parentheses. Grateful for that. The best tip for me, though, is the trick about assigning an icon to a solution file. This is a trick I did NOT know about, and have been searching for an answer to this for for a long time, so thanks for that.

    Keep ’em coming…

    1. Hi Peter
      Thanks for taking the time to reply. You have a great hit rate on the secrets!
      It has been interesting to hear which one’s people have discovered.
      More to come 🙂
      Cheers, David

  2. Thank you David! I still always learn something new from you. I didn’t know the trick for enclosing text in quotes or parentheses, or the check for problems in a script(I always kept the script window open until I fixed them). Thanks!
