    Table-Based Value List: Can't Retain Names Entered On-The-Fly

    I don’t Understand this. If this is true why use a tool like FileMaker?

    Is anyone making a living off FM?

    You're incorrect.

    Document Management Solution - Pros / Cons

    Kevin, almost everyone on this forum is a developer of one sort or another. Not always pro, but simply making solutions in FM makes a person a developer.

    FM15 on Mac Mini

    Or back up using FMS backup to a physically attached external drive and have Time Machine back up that drive. Never use TM to back up "live" files.

    Normalizing table with too many fields

    Whether hosted or local narrow tables are, imho, the way to go. Much faster for one thing.

    Can't create pdf

    This message is usually caused by a mistake in the path. What is the exact file path?
  10. I don't think Google search requests are especially relevant here. A thing to realize is that people or businesses are looking for solutions and couldn't give a rat's ass if they run on FileMaker or on some other platform. For that reason I believe it's important to charge for the development of a solution as a whole. The software necessary just happens to be FileMaker. This doesn't deserve more than a line item on an invoice. Also all this assumes the purchaser will NEVER have full access to the solution. Spoken from the point of view of a non professional developer . . . but a pretty good one.

    It's possible the files are paused . Check in the admin console. As well the host machine should be set to never sleep.
