    text calc displaying as zero

    i am not sure how this even evaluates with out escaping the quotes, unless you ignoring smart quotes? "sar_periods = {""1m"": ""1D"", ""2m"": ""1D"", ""3m"": ""1D"", ""5m"": ""1D"", ""10m"": ""1D"", ""15m"": ""1D"", ""20m"": ""1D"", ""30m"": ""3D"", ""60m"": ""1D"", ""120m"": ""1D"", ""240m"": ""2D"", ""1D"": ""5D""}" & ¶ & another option would be: InsertText ( to a variable ) script step as $template (No need for quotes or & or ¶ [%A%] security_name = %b% security_type = %c% account = %d% sar_timeframe = & %e% sar_timeframe_switch = %f% sar_periods = %g% sar_incremental_step %h% sar_max_step = %i% ma_timeframe = %j% ma_slow = %k% ma_fast = %l% order_size = %m% activate = %n% Then substitute for each place holder. Substitute ( $template ; [ "%a% ; #_security_name ] ; [ "%b% ; #_security_name ] ; ..... )

    text calc displaying as zero

    You can use & ¶ & in all instances vs & "¶" & as a single pilcrow will evaluate ( you have some with and without ) Or start from line two and like "[" & #_security_name & "]" & "¶security_name = " & #_security_name & "¶security_type = " & #_security_type &

    Launching apps in Go

    not all apps have a url scheme like FMGo, you may Try using the "shortcuts://" and then build a shortcut to open the calculator. https://support.apple.com/guide/shortcuts/about-url-schemes-apd621a1ad7a/ios https://ios.gadgethacks.com/news/always-updated-list-ios-app-url-scheme-names-0184033/

    Modifier key problems

    What is not true? something in that thread restarting doesn't remedy the issue not OS issue but a FileMaker issue ignoring inputs from OS?

    Insert PDF

    The Plugin: https://baseelementsplugin.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002990887-BaseElements-Plugin The Function: https://baseelementsplugin.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/207324927-BE-FileSelect You would install it on each machine which you can also do with putting the plugin (mac or pc) into container fields the use the Install Plugin script step to make sure the plugin is installed when the user starts the database on that computer for the first time. Then your script on the button to insert file would run the function and then you'd get a path to the file where you can use that from a variable and then use the insert file script step.

    Modifier key problems

    This issue I have found myself it's more tied to macOS - where FileMaker going deaf to the active modifier keys.

    FMP13 and FMP17 clients together

    Yes it is impossible to open v13 with v17 or vice versa via peer to peer hosting. FileMaker only maintains 3 versions of compatibility, where as v13 was end of life on Sep 18, 2017 https://www.filemaker.com/support/product-availability.html
