Hi Dennis,

I am running Mac's Lion 10.7.3 and managed to import my old Appleworks Database 
into a LibreOffice data base. But I prefer seeing a Layout or Browse view
(similar to that of File Maker). 
However, I don't see a menu option for that.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I haven't worked with FMPro in a few years, but I think that the Layout
mode you mention is called "Form Design" mode in LibreOffice, or at
least that's what appears to be nearest thing from what I can tell of a
quick search.

There are several ways to create forms in LibreOffice :

- using your ODB database file, click on the Form button on the left
handside, then either use the Form Creation Wizard or design a form
manually. The wizard will guide you through the steps of creating your
forms and subforms from tables, queries or views that you have already
setup in your database. By default, the form will be saved within the
ODB file. It is however possible to save the form outside of the ODB
file, i.e. as an independent entity, through the menu File > Save as,
once you have designed your form.

- create a form from scratch in Writer or Calc using the Form Design
toolbar, then attach that form to a datasource.
