Filemaker Pro 13 People Databae - Can't Add New Record

I downloaded free 30 day trial of Filemaker Pro 13 and opened the People database that "Filemaker Pro 13 missing manual" uses - it opens and contains records but I cannot add a new record as it's greyed out on toolbar - I am in Browse mode. Has anyone encountered this issue?

  • Hello Kathy,

    Thanks for your interest in FileMaker Pro 13: The Missing Manual. Here is some information on Browse mode from the book:

    "Browse mode is the one you see when you first open a database, since it’s the
    one you use most often. In this mode, you can add, change, and view data in
    your database."

    I think you might want to click the "New Record" button as Browser mode is not described as a place to enter completely new records. I hope this helps and have a great day!

    Best regards,
