  1. This worked, although it required adding a bunch of container fields to my schema. Specifically, what ended up working best was creating a layout (script accessible only) that was connected to a "user" table (because the temporary files might need to be created in a multiuser environment) that had an abstracted link to a document templates table, and another abstracted link to the destination table/record where the resulting file needed to be saved. This let me just refer to the object names without ever changing / losing context. I did discover after much troubleshooting, that appe
  2. I have an important application where I build a very large document in optional, themed sections. Currently, my process is to append a template section, make text substitutions against placeholders in each section, and then append another section, until the entire master document is built. However, in practice this means that when I add a new section, Scribedocsubstitute must scan, find, and replace against an increasingly large document - even though only the new (short) section has any replacements to be made. This means that the overall script slows exponentially with each added section.
  3. Wim - thank you for taking the time to respond. What you state --- is not clear on the Filemaker website! You probably saved me a bunch of confusion and research.
  4. Wow, I guess I'm still waiting on this answer. According to the Filemaker website, server-side plugins are now supported (I saw a youtube video with an earlier comparison page that appeared to say differently). https://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-cloud-for-aws/compare.html If anyone has any specific experience with the Scribe plugin on the cloud, I'd really like to know!
  5. Further update: The offending script function is "Export Field Options", not ScribeDocSaveContainer (which is working fine). Strangely, "Export Field Options" isn't working from one script, but is from another, so my mystery remains...
  6. Followup: This seems to be representative of an issue that appears on OSX from time to time. However, all solutions I tried accomplished nothing. - Removing DBCache - Selectively removing all Filemaker related temporary files and preference files - Running Disk Utility to fix all permissions - Running another repair utility (Cocktail) to run all maintenance scripts and flush virtual memory - Deleting (and recreating) the entire S10 temp directory above again, no luck. Is there a setting in Scribe to create a different name? Because otherwise, Filemaker is working just fine.
  7. FM 18 Pro, OSX Catalina, 2019 Imac. I've been working with the Scribe plugin for weeks, having developed many complex and successful scripts. While adding to a script (unrelated to 360Works, I believe), my Filemaker database locked up and had to be restarted. Since then, I have not been able to complete the ScribeDocSaveContainer process. When it reaches that point, the following error is thrown: '"$tmp" could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk'. I have restarted the OS, deleted the entire Filemaker
  8. Is Scribe fully compatible with Filemaker Cloud?
