The SIX-GOLDEN-RULES OF THEME MANAGEMENT in multi-file solutions


There is ONLY ONE WAY to make FileMaker themes to be updateable across multiple files!


Just follow these SIX golden rules, and you will not get painfully stung!


 ,-._.o-´`:´`-o._.-,



1. DEFINE THEMES AND STYLES IN *ONE FILE* ONLY

2. SYNCHRONIZE THEM TO OTHER FILES ONLY BY IMPORTING AND REPLACING THE THEME:


EITHER

LAYOUT MODE > LAYOUTS > CHANGE THEME... >  [IMPORT THEME...] > [REPLACE]




OR

FILE > MANAGE > THEMES... > [IMPORT...] > [REPLACE]



3. NEVER COPY AND PASTE THEMES

4. NEVER DEFINE THEMES AND STYLES BY HAND ANYWHERE ELSE IN YOUR SOLUTION

5. NEVER RENAME A THEME

6. BEWARE OF THEME AND STYLE IMPOSTORS AT ALL TIMES!



,-._.o-´`:´`-o._.-,


If you DON'T follow them, the theme and style impostors are sure to get you sooner or later...



...o r   m a y b e   m u c h,    m u c h   l a t e r !
