Along the top of the screen macOS sits the menu bar, which contains actions and preferences for both the system and individual app you’re using. In Tap Forms, the menu bar offers many critical and useful options for different app functionality.
Under “File”, you’ll have the ability to create a new document, open other database documents, import and export, and backup your files in Tap Forms, among other options. This is also the location where you’ll begin the printing process for your records.
“Edit” is the more traditional menu item, including options for copy, paste, undo, redo, delete, etc. Most of the things found here are provided by the system.
Within the “View” tab are multiple ways to switch between views in Tap Forms. Also available are shortcuts to viewing all forms, your forms, or customization options for the toolbar and Touch Bar.
“Forms” contains four options: “New Form…”, “Edit Form…”, “Duplicate Form…”, and “Delete Form…”.
Similar to the “Forms” menu, “Records” is specific to the records you’ve created in Tap Forms. Deleting, duplicating, and editing can be done here, as well as switching between records or creating a new one.
When working with layouts, “Layout” will be your go-to location for making changes. You’ll see ways to alter layouts, adjust what tools are displayed, and how the text looks within your layout.
“Tools” offers two shortcuts: “Edit Categories…” and “Edit Pick Lists…”. Both of these will jump you straight into the Lists tab of Preferences.
Like “Edit”, “Window” features mostly system options. However, the bottom settings are Tap Forms-exlusive: “Database Documents” and the documents you have open at the current time.
The “Help” tab offers quick access to the Tap Forms manual and screencasts. There are also shortcuts to emailing Tap Forms support, as well as to the Twitter and Facebook pages for the app.
