  1. Attached is a picture of the layout. Print margins are fixed: 12 pt (tob, btm; left and right). Print preview shows 2 pages. There are no other objects on the layout. Print Setup is set to landscape.
  2. Can anyone describe how to set up a layout for center fed #10 envelopes?😠 FM help says that after creating the layout you must verify margins and other settings before printing. How do you do that? I've tried everything I can think of, but the script print step prints 2 or 3 envelopes when the print dialog is set to 1 copy. I've tried adjusting the header and body dimensions (by guessing), I've tried deleting the header and keeping the body, I've even tried just keeping the header. Everything looks normal in Preview.
  3. This is a problem I frequently have. I can't custom format a date in the Inspector. I can't make a selection because the drop down menu becomes a long vertical blue stripe and selections are not available. I wonder if this is a FMP problem or a Windows 10 problem. Does any one else have the same problem?
  4. I have a flat file database with only one table. However, I cannot not delete records. I get the error "This operation cannot be performed because one or more required related tables are missing". However, I can create records, just can't delete them. Obviously, I don't have a related table.
  5. I'm looking for a script that will create a record for each Sunday in any given year, but I can't figure it out.
  6. Occasionally , when I try to delete a script I get the error "This script cannot be modified in this window because it is being modified elsewhere" . What's causing this and how can I stop it? No other script refers to the script.
  7. When I set a text object as a button to perform a script, it becomes “Grouped”. I find selecting the text for editing is very difficult. One option is to ungroup the object but then the button is deleted. Is there a simple way to select and edit the text without ungrouping it?
  8. Yes, Save a Copy as PDF. I would like to get the title in the filename.
  9. Can I adjust the Save Copy as PDF step to include the Title on the layout? For example, "Account List 2019". I frequently create lists for other years and would like to show the year in the pdf. Not just "Account list".
  10. I have a value list that displays a fixed set of years: 2018, 2019, 2020...2030. I use it for creating new records. I've already used the years 2018 and 2019 to create records. Is there a way to filter the list so it only displays the values after 2019? Or, is there another way to do what I'm trying to do?
  11. It makes not difference. However, I like your simpler approach. But I would sure like to know why the script doesn't work.
  12. I can't get find a range of dates with a script. The following script is supposed to find the last 12 records on the layout. The Perform Find results in the error that the provided find criteria is not correct. Even if I use Enter Find Mode and insert the variables, I get the same error. What gives? Layout [ “Log” ] Show All Records Sort Records [ Keep records in sorted order; Specified Sort Order: Log::Date; ascending ] [ Restore; No dialog ] Go to Record/Request/Page [ Last ] Set Variable [ $End; Value:Log::Date ] Set Variable [ $start; Value:$end-12 ] Perform Find [ Specified Find Requests: Find Records; Criteria: Log::Date: “$start...$end” ] [ Restore ] //Enter Find Mode [ ] //Set Field [ Log::Date; $start...$end ] //Perform Find
  13. The Import records script step lists the source fields as Source field 3, Source field 14, etc. How can I find out what the actual source fields are?
  14. Press ctrl+s on the keyboard.
