Hi from a relative newbie,
I have a FMP 13 file that works fine on some computers (both Windows and Mac) but on one Mac computer it works only partially. Several of the layouts work fine, but one layout is "frozen" and does not permit entry in any of the fields. Is there something in the Mac OS that could "lock out" a particular layout, but leave all others normally functional? Should I re-install FMP 13? (I'm not sure how to do that on a Mac. I'm mostly a Windows worker.) Any help or insight would be welcome.
As you know, FileMaker 14 included a new widely used feature: button bars. No need to say why they're awesome, but you've probably noticed it wasn't that easy if you wanted to create a lot of similar buttons, or convert your old button objects into button bars.
Well, these are not issues anymore, thank's to Federico Basmadyian's ButtonBarTool, available here.
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?
