Hello Seedcode team:

I just purchased an implementation package along with your latest calendar, but in the meantime I've come up with a fairly urgent problem and I'm posting it here, with the thought that who knows? Others may have experienced it.

I recently modified a couple of layouts in my current solution. One of them, an invoice list, usually takes a while to load. The problem is that we rarely need to access that layout in day-to-day work. For some reason though, ever since I completed those modifications, this same layout appears to load first every time we open the file. Only after it has finished loading does it then switch to the Calendar Day View (as specified in my "upon opening" script). For what it's worth, we are using remote hosting.

I have checked the "upon opening" scripts and those don't seem to have changed recently (thank goodness - no invisible sprites at work there!)

Do you have any thoughts or suggestions about how I might resolve this?

Yours truly, Jim

Three things will help this, Jim.

- Decide on a thin layout based on an empty table that you'd like to use as your starting point for the file. You can put your logo on this and instruct your upon opening script to stay here for a few seconds by you don't have to.

- Now take your file off the server and navigate to this layout. Make a schema change (add a field) and then save that change. Change File Options to go to this layout upon startup.

- Put the file back on the server and manage your upon opening script so it manages this experience the way you'd like (lingers on this starting point layout, moves past it, etc.)

Hope that helps,

John Sindelar
