This product is the actual license which will unlock all limits on the developer tools built into the Theme Studio. Read the following for more information.
The Theme Studio can be used for a wide range of tasks within FileMaker. The biggest advantage of using the Theme Studio tools is that you rarely have to leave FileMaker when working on your design. Staying within FileMaker decreases the amount of time it takes to design a great-looking FileMaker solution.
One of the main tools within the Theme Studio is the Icon Studio. This allows for icon (or image) manipulations. When working with either PNG or SVG icon files, you can quickly perform many of the most common image manipulation operations. These include the following
One of the most useful features of the Theme Studio is the fact that it's a database. This makes it very easy to centrally store whole layouts. These layouts can be taken apart and used in part or in whole. With newer versions of FileMaker, whole files can be exported from the Theme Studio. These files can contain importable themes which you can apply to your own layouts.
New Layouts can be purchased or shared via the Theme Studio's sharing method called ThemePacks.
Storing commonly used layout objects, such as portals, buttons and any other FileMaker layout element is managed within the Objects section of the Theme Studio. Using FileMaker's supported drag-n-drop makes it a breeze to reuse common layout elements.
Color themes can easily be created and managed within the Colors section. This makes it convenient to centralize the color themes used for your various projects.
FileMaker Pro uses a variation of CSS under the hood with its layout objects. Because these elements are exposed on the clipboard, it's very easy to investigate and manipulate these objects.
Accessing areas not exposed by FileMaker's Inspector palette makes it easy to fully customize many aspects of the various layout objects. A great example of this is being able to control the individual borders on a button object. You can make the top border black, the bottom orange and the sides blue if you wanted to!
Through the use of individual FileMaker files known as ThemePacks, it's possible to share your collections and creations with fellow developers. So, if sharing the Theme Studio via FileMaker Server isn't ideal, then simply export and update ThemePacks which you control.
You can also purchase newer themes and ThemePacks as they become available on the store. This can be accessed within the Shop section of the Theme Studio.
