Hello Ingvild and Cherie!
No...that is no longer true, Ingvild. The new SignBank8 does not have
that problem. FileMaker changed that with the FileMaker 7, 8 and 8.5...
So SignBank8 has some improvements...it is smoother. You can close
any window without closing the whole program.
Do you think you can get FileMaker 8.5 from Norway, Ingvild? I will
not have SignBank8 ready for a few weeks...and then we need to beta
test it ;-)
