  2. I have a solution to track employee expense reports which contains a container to store a pdf of related receipts. Currently, I create a multiple page pdf of receipts in Apple Preview, then paste it into the container. Was wondering if it was possible to create a FM script or AppleScript to drop a single, additional pdf into the container and "automatically" create multiple page pdf with the existing container contents? Thanks in advance!
  3. 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 !
  4. LS, All of a sudden the saveAsPdf script step produces this ( see picture ) result. It is an invoice, with almost all data screwed up. It looks like all letters were printed in the same column in stead of from left to right. To make things more complex, not all invoices print like this although they are using the same layout to print from. When I print to preview ( mac ) and the use the save as pdf options the invoice comes out great. How can this be ?

    Being unsatisfied with solutions I found on the internet and wanting a solution without plugin I created a set of custom functions that can read a path out of a json-string. Syntax: json_path ( json-string ; path ) examples: json_path( $user_prefs ; "Privileges/Modules" ) json_path( $json_data ; "Menus/Menu[10]/MenuItem[5]/Label" )

  6. Hi i created a report that gets saved intoa pdf into a field - all working great. just one interesting issue , ,not sure what it means , on the bottom of the layout i inserted a picture of the directors signature , which is a must for every report , however in browse mode it works fine but when i save it apdf for some reason it gets omitted , any idea if that is a filemaker limitation? i actually have the companies logo at the top and that is showing up correctly.
  7. Hi i created a certificate and want that when it is clicked to save it it gets created into a pdf and then imported into the cetification container field , however for some reason i am recieving some error in my script , the pdf does not save at all. see script below: i would appreciate if someone could tell me where i went wrong why my pdf is not saving and if this is the method to save the pdf to a container
  8. Hi Forum! I have a script which sends an email to [current record] . Now I want to attach a PDF to the email automatically using the script. So far I have tried with ... filewin:/$driveLetter/$targetDir/$[name_of_unique_field_from_FM] as variable file path. But nothing is attached when I run the script. I hope you can help.
  9. Dear all,  I'm having a problem in my Filemaker solution when insertion files in a container via script and also drag and drop. It worked fine fore more than 5 years and now i'm getting this strange massage (attached). The problem is not stable, because sometimes we don't see it. Also in some Macs it doesn't work at all.  I've tried to find a solution in the web, but i didn't found any solution. Is this a filemaker bug?  I really need an urgent helpÂ
  10. I have done a lot of research and don't see a solution. What I want to do is send and existing record atttached as a PDF via email in Filemaker go to wherever. everything I read says I have to save the record as PDF first? Then create a file path to the specific record. But that will clutter up the IOS too much. Kinda like print to pdf with email attachment and name the pdf a value from a field. I know this is probably possible, but I can't get it to work. So I'm reaching out to you Genius' if there is a solution that just creates an email attachment of the current layout and current record as a pdf . Make sense? Thank you in advance for reading
  11. The Insert PDF context menu item is greyed out on my container field when I have my database open locally. My Google Fu has failed me on solving this. My container field is on a layout, not in a portal. I have Interactive Content checked. I have a PDF viewer working in IE. (Zeon - I do not know where I got this plugin - I very rarely use IE.). I also have an older version of NitroPDF Pro which I use daily, but no IE plugin at the moment. The container field Storage settings are "Store container data externally" and using Open storage option. I also tried the secure storage option which was the default. I have FM Pro 14.0.4 and this database is not converted from earlier version. I am using Windows 10 I can drag and drop a PDF into the container and I get the PDF icon, but it is not interactive However it is interactive (both native and WebDirect) when I upload the database to FM Server - which is also my local computer for now. But in all cases Insert PDF is greyed out. The only other solution that the web has coughed up it to use the newest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader which is not an option - I refuse to use that piece of #$@&. What else can I try? Thanks, Brad
  12. I have found ways to do this from Filemaker in OSX but I can't seem to apply this to FMGo. I want to mail the current record as a PDF and to have the PDF name be derived from the value of a field (in this cas, the name of the client) Below is the script as it stands. Is this a possibility in FMGo? 1. Go to Layout [ layout name ] 2. Set Variable [$name ; Value: Patients::LastName ] 3. Save Records as PDF [ Restore ; No dialog ; "$name.pdf" ; Crerate email ; Current record ] 4. Go to Layout [ original layout ] THoughts?
  13. Since appending/combining PDFs with FM Go is not available natively and using a robot machine is not an option, I've dug up a handful of PDF APIs and options. I've got about 1/2 way through the problem, but I am getting some errors with the PDF API and not getting a lot of feedback. If anyone is interested in collaborating, please send a PM. Currently, I'm able to send two encoded PDFs from FM to the script and the script will spit back the combined PDF into a container field in FM. Super simple implementation. The PDF that comes back is blank, but has the correct number of pages. The server log shows some errors relating to the PDF API and that's where I'm stuck. here's some links to the code and questions regarding the issue: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/34953197/combining-pdfs-with-php-from-encoded-pdfs-error-template-does-not-exist and https://github.com/pauln/tcpdi/issues/3 If anyone has any alternative APIs or solutions, please let me know.
  14. Hi All, I have a container field holding a pdf and would like to run a script upon a button click that opens it in its native program or app. in this case Adobe Reader. Can anyone help with writing a script for this? I am lost and very new to FMPro. Cheers Simon
  15. Hi all I'm trying to work with the Save as PDF script step routine in a multi user environment. The idea is that a user will click a button and save a PDF (which has a pre defined name)of a generated report to a location on the file server which they themselves specify. This is the part I'm having problems with. I've looked at the Filemaker tips and videos and can see how to structure a static path using variables. However, the use case I have is that the PDF generated can go anywhere the user pleases, so ideally what I want is a 'Save as' dialog box to appear to allow the user to navigate through the network to the desired location. What is it I'm missing here? Thanks in advance
  16. I am creating a database solution that needs to read the text from a pdf in a container field and put it into another calculation or field for parsing. I have read many articles and can't seem to find a solution to something that a simple Mac Automator Action can do. I have done this in Filemaker for Mac (not Go) via AppleScripts. I need to do this native to Filemaker without plugins or external scripts as this will end up being on Filemaker Go residing on the tablet/phone. Is this possible?
  17. I am starting to create a new solution to catalog all of our companies Safety Data Sheets and would like to make the PDFs accessible through FMP14. At the moment I have created a container field that is Interactive and has temporary storage. If I choose "Insert PDF" FMP thinks about it for a moment then opens the pdf I have selected, if I close the pdf I can see that something is in the container but there is no content show. If I move to a record where this has been done the PDF automatically opens, albeit slowly, but I am unable to view the PDF contents without exporting it. If I insert the pdf as a file I see a file icon but am not able to read the file in any way except by exporting it. From reading about PDFs and container fields, it sounds like I should at least be able to see a thumbnail of the pdf but I am not able to read any of the PDFs content. Has anyone else been having that problem? A sample file is attached. Ideally the pdf would be viewable in the record or by clicking a single button and then could be saved to the user's computer for printing purposes. MSDS.fmp12
  18. In our database solution we have a table that holds other documents relating to the data. The enduser might insert a PDF or a JPG. So the table is made up of a container field, a job number (unique identifier). To view the file the user clicks in the container (script exports field contents and automatically opens). The thing we would like to do is when printing a job report if there are any "external documents", would like them to print as well. We want it be be part of the complete report. The container is setup for interactive content and start playback automatically. The script exports the container and imports it back in... on the Mac it produces the correct results, on the PC it prints as a pdf icon for example. Maybe what I want is not possible. Any suggestions.
  19. Hi please can someone help me when i insert a pdf i get a message not enough disk space and only get a referance file
  20. Dear sirs, When I drop a pdf-file (invoice) in a digital doc-container of "projects" it works. However, if later I want to open that pdf-file from the container, I get following error : "the file "51285.png" could not be opened. It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn't recognise". I don't know what I am doing wrong because the file format I use is "pdf" and not "png".
  21. Dear Community, Has anyone found a workaround to merge pdf's in filemaker go? I would like my users to create a multi-page pdf from different layouts and tables on their iPad on the field. Any idea is welcome! Xavier
  22. I have posted previously about the PDF creation in a runtime solution. People have offered suggestions although things like monkey bread software etc.. seem a bit complicated. I have created a runtime solution and this is the last piece of the puzzle. The customer is getting ticked off that this last part has become complicated. The PDFs they create are multi layout then I have append in a script to create one PDF across tables etc... One of my solutions was to have the endusers purchase a subscription to Filemaker and then we wouldn't have to worry about the limitations of runtime. The customer was not receptive to this idea. I've looked into plug ins but most are a little too costly. One day when I was searching I ran across a solution about moving the PDF libraries to the runtime solution. Someone had done it, and I didn't bookmark then link and cannot locate the information again. Anyone aware of this method. Any other suggestions, I didn't want to have learn iText etc... I have attached an example of the PDFs we create. Thank you, I've been pulling out my hair! Test.pdf
  23. I've seen a few unanswered and old threads about how to get total page count for a PDF on FMGo. Since the script step "Enter Preview Mode" is disabled is there another way to get the total page count of a PDF made in FMGo. Also, "Enter Preview Mode" is disabled on Server scripts as well. Any work-arounds?
