  1. LS, We recently migrated from FM14 to FM15 and suddenly some invoices come out strange after the saveAsPdf script step . ( see pic ). When in preview mode everything seems to be ok and is printed to a printer ok. Theme : Classic, Font used : Calibri size 11 and 12. Problem occurs on Mac 10.11 and Win10 with FM15. When I do a print ( to preview ( mac )) and then save as pdf everything is also ok, so it seems to be related to the FM pdf renderer. However, not every invoice has this issue, but I wonder how data could cause this behaviour. Best regards !
  2. Hello FM Mavens, I would like to be able to change an attribute (happens to be the size) of a selection in a text window with a script. (Basically, as if moving the size selector from the Formatting Bar into a button on a layout). I created a script that cuts the selection, puts it in another text field, makes the change, cuts it out and goes back to the original field but by then the insertion point is gone. I can manually paste it back of course. I wonder if there is a way to remember the insertion point somehow and make it a so the paste step uses it. Thanks Asu
  3. We just installed an HP LaserJet M525c printer and every report that FileMaker 11 prints to it has enlarged logos/fonts (see attached image). We haven't had this issue printing from any other program -- Word, Excel, even printing to a PDF from FM and then printing that PDF with Adobe. I've run different reports from different databases and each time, the report is printed faintly in the background with gigantic wording (the correct field headers and data fields) are blown up over top of it. Has anyone ever had this experience? Any ideas for a solution?
  4. I have not seen this mentioned anywhere - it's not listed in new features for 14 but I noticed that there is now a new popup Inspections > Text, right under the font. If I select Tacoma and then 'B' to bold it, this new popup changes to Negreta. If I unclick 'B' the popup changes back to plain. Many of the fonts have several variations listed, such as Arial. I wondered why it had been added. This 'font variation' popup works in tandem with the B, I, U icons so a guess ... I know some fonts COME already styled, such as Arial Bold. Maybe since FMI removed the fonts option, they've moved all 'available' fonts to this new variation popup. Another guess ... maybe it is less expensive for FM to use Arial Bold rather than using Arial and then having to bold it separately. I also found a semi-reference in FMGO 14 which might be related ... "Rich text editing – Choose the size, color, and font of your text — includes bold, underline, and italics options." But we've always been able to bold, underline etc so 'rich text editing' might mean something else here. Maybe this new popup is all part of a standardizing tactic for compatibility. Anyway, it was interesting so I wanted to share it. :-)
  5. I am using FM 12 04 advanced on Windows. I created a report that uses 10 pt Verdana font. But, when I distribute the report to a user, when he runs the report it looks like 16pt TImes Roman. Huh? Is there someway to 'force install' a font on a user machine? Or is there some other source to explain this phenomena? Thanks Ron I just heard from the user and DOES have Verdana installed on his PC. Is this weird or what?!
  6. Trying to draw expansion/reduction left/down black triangles that will work in native filemaker solutions for Mac and Windows. I don't think there is a character/font that works in both with these. Don't want to use a graphic, as often background shade does seem to match between platforms (good on one, mismatched on another), and images are slower over the Server wire. So my next solution was to do it using a small Web Viewer using a html/data approach, and the HTML character code. This works, except that the redraw seems so slow enough (even for this one character box) that I get a noticeable white flash on layout change as the background color of the web box is redrawn from white to the background colour of the layout. Am I missing an obvious solution here, or should I just skip the triangles? Thanks in advance for your expertise! Cheers, Justin
