GRAPHICS OBJECTS

Questions and suggestions for the CC Calendar product.

I have never really used graphics in my previous FileMaker projects. Other than dropping in a scanned logo, simple lines, text, and color have been the extent of my adventures.

I see the notation on the Calendar "Interface" layout to not put the graphics objects directly into the global fields as they are too heavy and to use screen shots instead.

I would appreciate some additional clarification on this, i.e. what do you mean? And how do you put in a screen shot? I'd love to give my new calendars a little more oomph than what I've done previously. I work on a Windows platform.

Thank you for your help.

Hi. We mean that you should put a screen shot of your image in the container field instead of just pasting the original FileMaker objects. For instance, if you build an icon using a combination of FileMaker lines, rectangles, and colors, you can copy and paste that collection of objects into a container field. We recommend you paste in a screen shot of the collected objects instead. This is a quick way to "flatten" the objects to a simple screen resolution image.

On Macs you can simply press shift-control-command-4 to create a cross-hair that will capture whatever you select with it. On Widows we have the best luck with Snag-It. Snapz-Pro is a similar product for Mac. Both of these do a lot more than take pictures and are worth checking out.
