40 Goodies in MBS Plugin

Have you seen our list of goodies in MBS FileMaker Plugin?

Since we started this in 2012 (read about the story), we got a lot of improvements for FileMaker's user interface to benefit the developers using it.

Earlier in 2023 a client asked if there is a list to describe them all, since the information was split over various blog entries, an outdated list of 20 goodies and a lot of details hidden in our documentation. We collected all the bits and pieces and added them to a comprehensive list. You find a list of all shortcuts here where we explain search shortcuts.

Recently we even showed them off in the live stream at RCC's fmtraining.tv.

Check out all goodies:

  1. Script Coloring
  2. Calculation Coloring
