Better text editor in form view


I’m in the process of deciding whether to switch over from Filemaker, and my workflow involves a lot of text. Research notes, interview transcripts, article drafts. Filemaker allows me to have a text entry field the size of most of the screen.

I guess what I’m really asking for is better form management options. For example, a two-column form with a narrow column for small fields – note title, subject, name of the person interviewed, that kind of thing – and a wide column for the main text field.


Hello Maria,

Faced with many of the same concerns … AT is so nice, but falls short of some key FM features for me.

Glad to share news/discoveries/eurekas! as they may occur.

All best,
