Limitations of the FileMaker Engine

FileMaker places several restrictions upon the functionality of Runtime Applications (such as Synaesthesia), of which we have no control over.
Some of the most important limitations are:
  1. The window close button (next to the minimize and maximize buttons) is disabled on every window
  2. An additional "Preferences" option is added to the Synaesthesia menu, containing options that are largely meaningless
  3. The data (.syn) files must be stored in a fixed location
  4. When Synaesthesia is active but all windows are minimized, there are many menu options. Aside from the "Window" menu, these menus serve no purpose.
