Getting Started With FileMaker 13 Themes | Skeleton Key

CALVIN COOPER of Skeleton Key delivers a great primer on themes and styles in FileMaker 13:

To view the styling options for a particular layout object: First select the layout object then view the styling tab in the inspector. If you deselect the show all check box you will be left with only the available styles for that type of layout object. You can quickly apply different styles by selecting the various options in the list. Try it out with the different themes and objects to see what is available. As you will find out: There are more to themes than what you see in the preview…

I hope that I have given you a clear idea of what the new theme tools in FileMaker 13 are capable of. An article on the web is always useful but is no replacement for experience. Get out there and start modifying and creating themes in FileMaker! Once you’ve got some practice under your belt then come back for part two where I will be reviewing some tips and techniques on creating custom themes!
