Quick Tip:

Tool Tip
If you want to draw multiple graphic objects while in layout mode, you may have some difficulty. Every time you finish drawing the graphic, the tool selection changes to the arrow, presumably to allow you to edit the graphic. If you want to draw multiple objects, double-click on the desired graphic tool. The tool will turn a darker shade and will stay selected until you choose another tool. If you always want tools to be locked with just a single click, see the preference setting in FileMaker "to always lock layout tools".

Fun Stuff:

Dull Boy
FileMaker files were stored in clear text prior to FileMaker 7 so, if you opened a FileMaker file in a text editor, you could see the phrase "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" in the header repeated over and over. No, it's not a virus! My understanding is the developers just needed to take up some space in the header and that's what they came up with. Today, modern FileMaker files are stored in Unicode so I'm not sure if the phrase is still there.
