When a developer saves changes on a layout, AND that layout contains a slide control, then all users who have that layout active will see a reset of their slide control: it jumps to the first slide.
Is there a way to prevent this OR:
Is there a way to trigger this and let a script activate the original slide.
Couldn't find a trigger that reacts on this "developer-layout-save-event", that's why I post my problem here.
The solution is “don’t do that”.
When you make changes to the layout FMP has to reload the layout and it uses the default view options.
I can't prevent working in active layouts and it is just a small annoyance for the users but I thought someone had a workaround.
Be extremely careful. A small visual refresh may be inconvenient but bad things can happen too.
This touches the already many times discussed topic about working on a live database or transferring the data to a new version. In this case (and many other cases imo) it is necessary, especially for smaller corrections but sometimes also for larger.
I will very carefully click the OK-button...
I avoid working on life databases. However, if necessary, it is done when all others went to sleep.
