  1. Filemaker into Mac menu bar

    The purpose of the Menu Extra is to cient user a list of all active jobs. The would select a job and that would activate an FM script to direct them to the right location either in FM or on our SAN. Thanks for the links. I will have to dig in to check them out, as I have not done something like this before. I am sure I will more questions, but thanks for the head start.
  2. Is there any to get an icon on the Mac menu bar at the top of the screen to either open a Filemaker solution or better yet, provide a list (from filemaker) directly like what you see when you select a WiFi network?
  3. I can not get this to work either on FMP16. Perhaps no one wants to scrub music in FMP...? I am currently doing a crazy work to resolve this in my solution.
  4. Just figured it out. I had two fields named the same, but one had an underscore. Thanks for the input though.
  5. I also tried option1. The calculation in the child table is correct, but when I display that in the parent table it is 0. It is almost like it is totally ignoring the relationship, but the relationship is simple connection of two number fields that DO match. Just for reference I tried approach 1 & 2 in a new solution and it worked fine.
  6. Yes it is unstored. The relationship works for other uses, just not for the Count function. This is so simple and also very confusing. This is the calc: Count ( Tracks::k one )
  7. This is pretty a simple request that does not seem to work. I have two tables Parent and Child. I want the Parent record (of which there is only) to display the number of Child records in each parent set. In the Child table I have field 'k one' (a calc with a value of 1). In the Parent I have a calc field Count(Child::k one). No matter what I do the value is always 1 on all of the parent records, but it should read 25, 65, 44, etc depending on the number of child related records. What am I missing? Thanks in advance, David
  8. I am simply trying to insert an mp3 file into a container field using a script - go to field, followed by insert audio/video. The error I receive is 'the file could not be found.' I have tried using both a variable and the full path to define the file (two paths listed below). It does work fine when I do this manually using the menu options. What am I doing wrong? moviemac:/Users/david/Desktop/MusicRapTemp/thinking.mp3 moviemac:/Volumes/SDD/Users/david/Desktop/MusicRapTemp/thinking.mp3 These are absolutely the correct path of the file. Just FYI I can not get this to work with the Insert File option either. FMP16 Thanks David
  9. Import Audio .aif or .wav

    I am working with the Content Management template to create music catalog. Using the GetContainerAttribute to load the metadata from an mp3 or m4a works great. However it does not work with .aif or .wav files. These files have exactly the same metadata when imported into iTunes, but FMP does not recognize them. In fact if you convert an aif to an mp3 (from iTunes) then import the mp3 into FMP it works just fine, but the aif imported directly does not. The catalog is going to be a mixture of all four formats, so converting them all is not going to be a workable solution. Does any one have any experience with a workaround to try to extract the metadata? Thanks, David 12 Click Bait (MAIN).mp3 VH065_12_CLICK_BAIT_(MAIN)_Joseph_Saba,_ASCAP_50_Stewart_Winter,_ASCAP_50.aif
  10. Can not export container field

    I solved this. I think there was something wrong with the name of the file that I was exporting.
  11. Can not export container field

    Thanks LaRetta. I tried that and it does work. So looks just like there was something wrong with my path. Seems to work for the desktop export now. Any chance you also know why containers with an .m4a can't be scrubbed like container with a .mov? This is exporting field contents is just a work around for that problem. David
  12. Using the script step export field contents, I can not export the contents of a container field. Error message reads ...could not be created on this disk. use a different name, make more room on the disk or use a different disk. I know I have had this in years past, but I can not remember the fix for this. I found something about setting the fonts to .ttf, but I am on a mac running fmpa16. Any help would be much appreciated. David
  13. I don't see anyway to scrub an audio file like an mp4 or 3 when placed into a container field. It works great if the content is a quicktime movie. It also does not display the time of location in the track (i.e. skip to :37). Any way to make this work or work around? Thanks David
  14. Hmmm. That seem like an extra step hassle to change the color of button or the size of the text. No other simpler workaround...other than opening the solution in FMP 15?
  15. When I open my solution in FMP16, any button that has an assigned to as script is now 'grouped.' This is locking me out of making any design changes to the buttons without ungrouping and re-assigning the button. Once I re-assign the script the button it that becomes grouped again. Ugh! When I open the same solution in FMP15 I do not experience any of these issues. BTW I am using the Classic Theme. Had anyone experience this problem and found a solution?
