  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. install plugins

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

    why the mac version? I'm using fm15 adv for the pc.
  5. 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.
  6. install plugins

    Thanks I'll give it a try. By the way, I had a type. I'm using FMP 15 adv.
  7. 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?
  8. yes. perhaps from FM adv 13 that I still have on my computer. Although, I thought the DDR is integrated with FM.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. Yes, it did work before. I've tried a few: delete record, go to layout, etc. Nothing seems to work. I wonder if I should reload FMP
  12. FM 15 Adv. The Button Setup in the Inspector and in Format/Button Setup is not working. I cannot set it up for a Single Step. Each time I try, it reverts to "no action" setting. It sometimes does this when I set it to run a script. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
  13. share a file dialog

    FM 15 Adv. I have a file that on startup displays the message "FM cannot share a file because FM network sharing is turned off". I don't want to use file sharing with this file. How can I stop this message from appearing?
  14. Go to layout problem

    FMP 15. When the scrip step Go to layout executes, I get the error “The script cannot be found or has been deleted”. When I click ok in the dialog, FM goes to the layout. What could cause this?
  15. Can't create pdf

    FM won’t create a pdf file. When I use File/Save records as/pdf I get the error message “File could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk” I have no trouble creating files from other apps and the disk has many GB of storage available. Further, the disk is not locked. I try different file names, but get the same error.
