Adding shortcuts to FileMaker on Mac OS X

I have a seen a lot of complaints on mailing lists about shortcuts – that developers are used to – that are now missing from FileMaker 11. I may not be able to help restore those shortcuts, but I would like to show you how you can add shortcuts to menu items that do not have one.

In addition, you can invoke the “Inspector” by hitting Command + “I”, and you can switch between the tabs by hitting Command + “1” for Position, Command + “2” for Appearance and Command + “3” for Data.

 

Evernote

This is exactly how I envisioned my application over a year ago, when I started working on it with some developer friends, except one or two EXTRA features, which I am not going to elaborate on.

Evernote, however is an excellent application for collecting notes from the web or your head and then syncing them automatically to different platforms, such as your iPhone. I have already made a nice FileMaker-related notebook on my Mac desktop app from different sources. The information can be tagged and is searchable, as well as you can email notes as PDFs automatically. Two thumbs up, Evernote!

In the image below you can see my collection of FileMaker-related notes:
