  1. Here is what I have discovered so far: Part of the problem is that Apple has removed the Gatekeeper option "Anywhere" in OSX v 10.12.5. If you want it back, open Terminal and type:
  2. I am running SM in Windows 10 using FM 16 Advanced. Like a lot of posters on this forum I had the <unknown> error; plus others. The solution to that problem is to open the SM .fmp12 file, locate the function and copy the code. Then, I went into my functions and located the same function (looked the same to me), deleted the existing code and repasted. It worked! Why? I have no idea. However, this plugin function will not work in runtime. FMaker has depricated runtime so it is, at this point, unsupported. SMaster is doing their best to see what the problem is but they can't call FMAKER so their efforts are limited. Note this: In the runtime, if I remove the plugin from the Extensions folder, my app runs normally and as expected. If I paste a copy of the plugin into the Extensions folder, the app will not start; it hangs. grrrrr So, there is my 2 cents....
  3. Version 5.03 (5/12/2017) * Fixed an issue that prevented plug-ins from loading in Windows Server 2012r2 * Fixed an incorrect licensing error when attempting to generate plugins with ScriptMaster Advanced Version 5.02 (5/11/2017) * No longer requires Java installation * Can use plugin functions as script steps with a user-friendly GUI for specifying parameters * Better error reporting in scripts * Compatible with FileMaker Cloud * Better compatibility with FileMaker Server for Perform Script on Server and scheduled scripts * Each plugin runs in a separate process, increasing reliability and stability * Plugins can be reliably unloaded, making it possible to auto-update without restarting FileMaker * Where appropriate, plugin parameters can be selected from pull-down lists and checkboxes * Support for streaming large container data, allowing unlimited amounts of data to be transferred between FileMaker and the plugin without running out of memory. * Compatible with the older plugin API, so you can continue to use your existing scripts and calculations with the new plugins. * Corrected URL for help button in plugin configuration dialog

  5. I use Set Variable[$$FilePath; Value:SelectFile on my mac and everything seems to work. (Have not tested runtime yet) The same file in the same script produces an error in place of 'Value:SelectFile' on my Windows 10 PC. I think we are just going to have to wait for 360Works to fix it....
  6. All companies, including software companies either alpha and beta test in sufficient numbers to catch errors or they make their customers their beta testers. Having said that, I am willing to btest future versions. Do you know how I should proceed?
  7. I am not just a critic, I am willing to be a beta tester. Is that open to me?
  8. I have a WIndows 10 PC running FM 16 Advanced Yes, I have the same 'problem' I have a 'main' window upon which I have custom menus. But, when I run any of 25 different reports, I DO NOT WANT MENUS. So, Set Menus OFF on the report window. BUT, after I close the report window and return to the MAIN window, the menus that were previously ON are instead OFF. To top it all off, THERE ARE NO MENUS; not even the FM Menus. So, I have to invoke TASK Manager and kill FM so that I can start it up and get back into it. This begs the question: "Did Filemaker beta test 16 with developers before they released it?" Does anyone have a work around for this situation?
  9. try Briandunning.com Perhaps this: http://www.briandunning.com/cf/355
  10. I too have experienced 'weirdness' in portals. My best advice is to drag everything out of the portal and then replace it with a single field that is clearly within the portal's defined area. If that doesn't work, drag the content to the side, delete the portal, recreate the portal and drag the content back... Hope this helps R
  11. FileMaker will take care of the importing. You should use the ScriptMaster SELECTFILE Function: The 360Works instructions are complete but can seem obtuse at times. Just watch the video and 'mess with it' until it works. R
  12. I have developed a membership database and wrestled with the FM Import process. In my app, I use the ScriptMaster plugin : http://www.360works.com/scriptmaster/ It is priceless and works wonderfully (with single exception on a Mac) I have about 100 'sample' records and using the 'Import Previous Version' custom function, my users can always import the previous version of my app or revert to the sample data. I don't reset the serial numbers but instead just use the sn of the imported data. It seems to work. Hope this helps.
  13. Make sure your portal fields are 'completely with' the top portal row. Even a 1 pixel intrusion will cause this event.
  14. I just compiled my FM app in OSX :   Model Name:   iMac  Model Identifier:   iMac13,2  Processor Name:   Intel Core i7  Processor Speed:   3.4 GHz  Number of Processors:   1  Total Number of Cores:   4  L2 Cache (per Core):   256 KB  L3 Cache:   8 MB  Memory:   32 GB   After running a report, my custom menu turned totally grayed out.  I could not make any selection on any menu. So, I did a 'force quit' and restarted.  This time, everything worked as expected; and has consistently since that time. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Thanks  Â
