The annual FileMaker developers conference (Devcon) is coming up soon. Something we always look forward to at Portage Bay, this year the conference is in Dallas, Texas. Thank goodness for air conditioning!
With the introduction of FileMaker 16 for Windows, the FileMaker interface was redesigned to handle multiple windows, more akin to the Mac OS. Instead of using one application window, Windows users can now run multiple windows, each with their own menu and toolbars.
Need to do some data collection from users who don’t have FileMaker? A survey, application, or registration? As with most things FileMaker, there are multiple solutions to this requirement.

In this video, we're showing some of the new FileMaker 17 developer features, specifically the redesigned developer palettes, the new grouping functionality, and the new “Default Fields” functionality.
