  1. What is an Active Segment in Button Bars? What is it used for?
  2. FMP 15 Adv. When I try to drag-slide an object into a popover, the object goes behind the popover not into it, and I can’t bring it forward. Copy and paste doesn’t work either. The object’s dimensions are less than the popover’s. I don’t know what’s going on. Any suggestions? Is there a good reference for working with popups? FMs help doesn’t discuss any of these types of issues.
  3. FMP 15 Adv. I am having a lot of trouble working with Popovers, placing objects in Popovers and formatting Popovers. When I move an object into a layout, I can’t resize the popover to fit around the object. Sometimes the object disappears and bring to front does not bring it back. Also, focus on the popover is always turning off and re-seleting it is very difficult. You can’t just click on it. I have to repreatedly keep clicking. Any suggestions or good references?
  4. Jump on click

    It happens every time and I'm pretty careful when clicking. I've even resized some objects so their height is a multiple of the minor grid step height.
  5. Jump on click

    FMP 15, Adv, Windo10 64-bit. When I click on a layout object, it jumps a point or two, even if it is aligned to the grid. This is driving me crazy making it hard to organize objects on layouts. What could be causing this and how can I stop it?
  6. When I try to create a perform find script step, FM hangs when I select a certain table in the Edit Find Request dialog. I can select other tables and the program does not hang. Only that one. I have to use Ctrl+Alt+delete to recover. The TO is a loner, it has no related tables. I ran recovery, but FM does not find any problems. Any idea what's causing this?
  7. File won't open

    When I try to open a file I am developing, I get the following error. I have no idea what's causing this, but is there a way I can get around this and open the file so I can see what's going on? The problem may be in the Startup script.
  8. install plugins

    I'm using Windows 10 64 bit.
  9. install plugins

    why the mac version? I'm using fm15 adv for the pc.
  10. install plugins

    I still can't get Plug-in to work. I'm trying to install BaseElements.fmx64. I created a file with container field. I inserted the plugin into the container field and wrote a single line script to install it. However, I get the error "baselements.fmx64 could not be installed". Also, it is not listed in the permissions/plugin window.
  11. install plugins

    Thanks I'll give it a try. By the way, I had a type. I'm using FMP 15 adv.
  12. install plugins

    FM 12 Adv, Win 1. I down loaded a plug in but don't know what to do with it. I tried storing it in the Filemaker Extensions folder, but it does not show up in Plug in management. How do I install it and where do I store it? Will the plug in be available in all solutions or only in one file? Does it need activation?
  13. yes. perhaps from FM adv 13 that I still have on my computer. Although, I thought the DDR is integrated with FM.
  14. FM 15 ADV, Windows 10 64 bit. The DDR report is not showing the layouts and scripts that a field is used in. Can this be fixed? If not, is it possible to get and use an earlier version of the DDR?
  15. It happens in all files. What do you mean "is the file being served"? These are all single files that I run on my computer by only me.
