Filling objects, layout parts, or the layout background with an image
You can fill an object, a layout part, or a layout background with an image. Supported image formats include .png, .bmp, .tif, .gif, or .jpg.
When you fill an object with an image, the image is stored in the FileMaker Pro file and appears in every record that uses the layout. You can also insert an image onto a layout, which lets you reference the image from another file. See Inserting graphics onto a layout.
To fill an object, a layout part, or the layout background with an image:
In Layout mode, select one or more objects, a part label, or click anywhere in the layout background to select it.
See Selecting objects.
Note  To select the layout background, ensure no objects or parts are selected.
Click Inspector Inspector button in the layout bar, then click Appearance.
See Specifying the display state for an object.
In the Graphic area, for Fill, click Image.
Note  To display the layout background, one or more layout parts must be transparent. See Setting the fill, line style, and borders for objects, layout parts, and the layout background.
Select an image file, then click Open (Windows) or Insert (OS X).
Tip  To change an inserted image file, click Choose and select a different file.
Note  Sliced fills do not display lines or rounded corners, and circles display as square images.
To export an image, in Layout mode, right-click the image and choose Export Fill Graphic. Choose a location and type a filename, then click Save. FileMaker Pro saves the image in the specified location. You can’t export an image if you set the option to store only a reference to the file.
