Is there a way to get a Filemaker project easily converted into a Xojo project? I am a little bit frustrated lately with FM because it’s hard to do some basic things like using rtf export/text fields, adding alignment tools and creating an easy to use file menu where I can create a new document and saving it, instead of having the main program itself being saved as a duplicate. I assume that in Xojo I would be able to create something as Word if I really wanted?
I created a creative story writing program in Filemaker and for that I need to be able to use alignment tools for the screenwriting formats that I hope to implant in the app. Also, FM turns out to have a limitation on how many pages can be printed from txt fields used. So it’s not possible to print out for example a 500 pages novel written in my app. A work around would be to print it out in parts, but then I would not have a continue page numbering. Are these things also limited in Xojo?
The last weeks I spent a lot of time finding work arounds in FM for things that are difficult to do, so probably that means I am working in the wrong development environment. Also, I hope to market this app at some point, and I feel that at this moment, I am not totally behind it as it is now.
