SHSU Technology Tutorials | File Maker Pro | Toolbars



Toolbars

The toolbars can be accessed by clicking on the View menu and selecting Toolbars. Then, choose your toolbar from the submenu. FileMaker has two toolbars: standard and text formatting.

View Toolbars

 


The Standard Toolbar

The Standard Toolbar is used to perform standard tasks, such as saving, printing, spell checking and defining your forms.

Toolbar

The New Layout button allows you to create another layout while the Duplicate Layout button lets you create a copy of the original. The Delete Layout lets you erase your current layout.

The Save Layout button allows you to save your current layout while the Revert Layout allows you to go back to the previously saved version.

The Define Database button allows you to add fields, as well as tables. The Define Values button helps you to define data values to refine data within the fields.


The Text Formatting Toolbar

The Text Formatting toolbar is where you can change text and formatting in either the field names or the fields.

Text Toolbar

To change the font and size, click on the first two drop-down arrows. If you want to increase the size incrementally, click on either the Increase Font Size or Decrease Font Size buttons.

If you want to make your text bolded, italicized or underlined, click on the Bold, Underline or Italic buttons.

If you want to make your text bolded, italicized or underlined, click on the Bold, Underline or Italic buttons.

The next three buttons deal with text spacing. You can either have single, double or custom spacing. When you click on the Custom Spacing button, you will get the Paragraph dialog box.
