How do I change the look of CC Time or change the tabs like Blank and About?

Applicable Versions: Single User Free, single User Pro, Multi User Pro

All the interface objects, like the tabs and rounded corners used in CC Time, are stored in global fields. you can access these field directly on the About / Interface tab of CC Time. (A second layout, “Interface”, contains the actual container objets pasted onto the layout as a backup.) Many of these graphics need to be edited in Photoshop as they are not FileMaker objects. Aside from the contents of these global fields, you can edit the layouts in CC Time just as you’d edit any other FileMaker layouts. (From ScriptMaker, run the “Show Status Area” script to gain access to the layout stat bar.)

The names of each tab (”Daily”, “Month”, etc.) are stored in global text fields and are editable right on the About / Interface tab of CC Calendar.

Note: if you’ve made a clone of CC Time, the graphics in these global fields will be erased. Simply return to the Interface layout (layout no. 2) and select each graphic from the layout, enter browse mode, and paste it into the global field to the left of each graphic. Be sure to do this when you have “sole access” to the file: most reliably done by taking the file off FileMaker Pro Server. Globals reset on a multi user system do not persist past that “session” and will be gone when you next reopen the file.

Are there any shortcuts in CC Time?

Applicable Versions: Single User Free, Single User Pro, Multi User Pro

Yes. There are a few shortcuts you can access by shift-clicking (holding down the shift key when clicking on an item).

• When logging time, clicking on the End Time field will insert the current time into the field if it is empty. If there is already a time in the field, shift-clicking on it will replace that value with the current time.
• Shift-clicking on the Log Time tab will take you to the default log time layout instead of the last log time layout used. (The default log time layout is defined by selecting a combination of open and close icons on the Setting screen of the About tab.)
• Clicking on a card from the All Cards] (or My Cards) portal selects the card. Normally, clicking on the card again de-selects it. Shift-clicking on the selected card, however, re-selects it. This can be used to re-select the card after the filters have been changed away from those of the selected card.
