  1. welcome to the forums a field can't have two types of style formatting applied with regard to entry - or drop down you may stack two of the same fields and use hide object when logic to hide the field based on you yes/no field.
  2. I am not sure if this is possible with plastic, you can use it with a mag stripe reader connected via USB. At this time i don't believe Plastic will work with CHIP readers or NFC readers. Some merchant terminals may have some sort of api where that device after payment capture happens you click a button on the computer that which knows the device id and your api key you do a request to there merchant api and get back a result from the recent transaction, including the payment approved amount or if it was declined etc.
  3. It largely depends on the structure of your database, FileMaker is a relational database and depending on how it was architected yo may have to "flatten" out the data set in order to make it moderately useful via excel exports. your database may contain a 'join' table that links donors and contacts or other data, it may only contain parent & foreign keys that make the business logic work. you need to look at the base schema how many tables you solution contains and export each table in to an excel file then you can bring all tables in to excel as separate tabs.
  4. You need to use the IOS ShortCut app by apple (may need to download it) from there you can target a URL
  5. Try using Shortcuts to open the file with URL ( fmp18://~/FileName ) then set the shortcut to save on Home Screen
  6. you will also get different word counts if you have a break character with a number following it WordCount ( "A111-B222-C333-D444" ) = 4 WordCount ( "A111-B222-C333-444D" ) = 3
  7. plugins will work on client regardless where hosted - however if you wanted to take advantage of PSOS or Server SideScripts that is not available for Cloud 2.0
  8. Kind of really depends on the layout and object settings... in layout setup make sure you uncheck the boxes when these are on objects with borders won't print properly you may consider adding padding to the field the size of the field will slide up and should preserve some margin around the text consider making line spacing .875 vs 1 one time had similar issue I would count words in the fields if the field was over a certain threshold i would use logic in the "Hide Object When" on various copies of the field to show/hide as needed each version had a different setting or alignment and in some cases depending on platform used a different font. try something different use a Virtual List to output the document. if you are ok with printing to a PDF first and then printing the pdf vs Printing directly from FMP one option you could possibly do is generate HTML then use a tool that converts html to PDF - this should preserve structure and avoid clipping of text. YMMV
  9. I think you are requesting that the data entered be formatted to match ###-##-#### https://www.briandunning.com/cf/872 Format.fmp12
  10. it is unclear what you are asking.
  11. I believe so or you could just use the standard send email script substituting the SparkPost Injection credentials . Here is the API method i use. https://www.teamdf.com/blogs/sending-email-from-filemaker-using-sparkpost/
  12. I also recommend a good transactional email service such as SparkPost you can either use their API or you can send mail by injecting it as SMTP just like your doing now, your just going to use a different set of credentials.
  13. I am not certain the reservation for using a plugin - I would highly recommend using BaseElements plugin (free) BE_FileMove ( fromPath ; toPath ) will allow you to rename the file.
