I am creating a Filemaker Data base to help me with my work flow.
I would like to create A4 Layout but I can't find an easy option how to find it on FMP 13.
I can't find an easy way to create a template with size selection for Header - Body & footer and make sure that it will be printed on A4 Size.
Does anyone can help?
When on webdirect I copy/paste text into a box, but when I click away the text is automatically reformatted with double spacing. Is there a way I can prevent this from happening. If I copy/paste into the desktop software, or even via webdirect on the computer hosting the server, the double spacing doesn't happen.
Folks I'm having a bit of headache with a search script. I want to search a date range from today to 90 days in the future.
Currently I've made a script with a step saying:
Insert Calculated Result [Select; "date field"; ( Get (CurrentDate) & "..." (Get (CurrentDate) + 90)]
Being in the UK, I'm working with a file that was created on a US computer - the month and day are the wrong way round. I've changed the text on the system to use system settings but that still doesn't solve it! Frankly, that's quite ridiculous! Surely a bug like this that has been around for a VERY long time must have been ironed out of the software code?
From what I understand, to avoid this, I need to create a clone of the whole database copying everything across to stop this calculation showing up the MM DD round the wrong way. I don't really want to have this headache, so I tried creating Calculation Fields in my Products table (that actually show up the right way round) and using them in the above code, but the search field just show up as empty aside from the "..." in it.
Are there any workarounds for this to save me the headache of cloning a rather complex database with a few dozen tables?
We recently bought an Evolysis Card Printer, which prints Front and Back of the card automatically.
(Current Situation: We are using a Corel Draw template, the front is on page 1, while the back side is on page 2.. when we want to print, we simply select page 1 and 2 and the printer prints the ID Card front and Back automatically)
However, with filemaker, we print the front and then inserts the card back to the printer so as to print the back side.
Thus, the layout design of our database has the Front Side on one layout, and then the Back side on another layout.
With this new Printer, how can we leverage on its dual page printing capability in designing our layout?
Is there a way to design the layout such that the printer knows which is page 1 and which is page 2?
