Setting the text input method for fields
If your operating system is configured to support input methods for entering text, you can specify a text input method for fields. For example, you can set input methods for fields that contain Japanese text.
Input methods are software utilities that convert keystrokes to characters in another language such as Japanese. FileMaker Pro supports the following Japanese input methods:
To set the text input method for a field:
In Layout mode, select one or more fields. Or, to specify attributes for fields you add later, start with no fields selected.
For more information, see Selecting objects.
Click Inspector Inspector button in the layout bar, then click Data.
In the Behavior area, select Set input method, and select one of the following input methods from the list. (The input method choices are different in Windows and OS X.)
Tip  There is a FileMaker Pro application preference to set Synchronize with field’s font for all fields in all files that you open. For more information, see Setting font preferences.
