  1. 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
  2. Can not export container field

    I solved this. I think there was something wrong with the name of the file that I was exporting.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. do shell script not working in FMP16

    Perfect! I just found this in a web video and was going to respond to my own post. Thanks.
  9. I have been running simple shell scripts under Perform Applescript for years, but this does not seem to work in FMP16. It is simply opening a folder from our SAN. Anyone else have this problem ?
  10. Chart Border that won't go away

    Hi LaRetta Although all appearance occurrences had the line set to off, your mention of Classic theme made me wonder if it was related to the theme. And it was, if I switch the theme out of Classic the chart no longer highlights with all of the same settings (copy/paste). Thanks so much for you help.
  11. Chart Border that won't go away

    Strange behavior. I just made the chart into a button to commit the record and that seems to resolve it.
  12. Chart Border that won't go away

    The chart is in a tab so it is a little more complicated than that. I get the black line regardless of where the chart is placed though. Is this normal behavior for a chart?
  13. Chart Border that won't go away

    I have basic chart that has a ugly black line around the border of the chart when any area of the chart is selected. I have go through all of the appearance pulldowns of hover, selected, focus, etc and none of the have black border. The chart itself also does not have a black border. The border only appears when some clicks on the area were the chart is. Selecting it does nothing, but the area that it covers is quite large...not sure how to adjust that. Any ideas on how to get rid of this border? Thanks
  14. Displaying raw html

    Right, ideally I am not extracting an image, but instead displaying that image from the contacts linked in profile page using a web viewer. The key is the logic display this for all contacts, given that we have a link to their linked in page already in our database.
  15. Displaying raw html

    Thanks Mike. Unfortunately this is a bit beyond what I understand about web viewers and html. Would it be possible (or easy) for you to show me an example of how this would work using this profile? https://www.linkedin.com/in/jack-sheehan-85412465
