  1. I'm having issues even with the "Include only related values starting from". My solution is very sluggish as well. I have a self-join relationship for navigating records that used to refresh seemingly instantaneously when I clicked on the record. Now it takes about 2-3 seconds to move between records via the same method.
  2. I've opened my FM11 file in FM12 and am noticing odd or different behavior between the two versions that I don't understand. In a portal, I have a value list that is based on a field. This values are the children of the parent item in the particular record being shown on each portal line. In FM12, the values from the first line item is just repeated in every record below regardless of the parent, UNTIL I actually click on the field, and then the displayed values changes to the appropriate values for that particular record...as soon as I click out, the display reverts to showing the values from the first record. If I am not explaining this sufficiently, I can try to post an example later today. Thank you for any help.
  3. Screen shot 2011-06-21 at 8.26.25 PM.pdfAttached is a screenshot of my issue, but when I have graphics plum to the right side of my portals, there always seems to be a piece missing in Browse mode. I know that others have had this issue in the past, as I read on it a couple of years ago, but now I cannot find those forums. My question is does anybody know a work around or solutions for this issue. I know that I can simply move my graphics over a couple of pixels, but I dont like the cosmetics of it.
  4. Excellent point! Based on the content of the text fields I'm using this for, a period followed by a space would be a safe alternative.
  5. Yes, I would like to do this as a custom function. The text field will have numerous sentences, so I would like each parenthetical text moved to the end of it's respective sentence (i.e., the position just before the period where the phrase was found).
  6. I need help from those of you more creative than myself. Is there a way that a calculation can find every parenthetical phrase in a text field and move each one to the end of that sentence. Example Input: "The patient's score was average (i.e. Full Scale IQ = 50th percentile) on the Wechsler Scales of Adult Intelligence." Desired Output: "The patient's score was average on the Wechsler Scales of Adult Intelligence (i.e. Full Scale IQ = 50th percentile)." Thanks for your help!
  7. I've found a custom function that meets my need: http://www.briandunning.com/cf/1114
  8. Hello, I'm trying to create a custom function that will search a text field for all duplicate phrases that start with a particular character (i.e., "{") and ends with a particular character (i.e., ":") and output a list of those. For example, if my text is: "{Memory: The patient's memory was measured in the above average range for visual stimuli. {Memory: On memory tests involving auditory stimuli, the patient's performance was impaired. " Then I would like the custom function to output: "{Memory" My reasoning for wanting to do this is difficult to explain, but basically it is part of a larger custom function that reorganizes reports based on headers that are already consistently marked with the a "{" at the beginning and a ":" at the end. Thanks for the help!
  9. I don't know the answer to this problem, but just wanted to say that I am having the same issue in printing, in which the lines break as expected in FMP10 Advanced, but do not in FMP11.
  10. I would like to do this on a mac. Is this possible? I'm not familiar with applescript, but I'd try learning if it can be done.
  11. I've also had this problem and found that I had a electrical short in my router (I could wiggle the wire and shut down everybody). I replaced the router. Coincidentally, 1 week later, I increased our internet speed due to a special with AT&T and the problem returned for offsite clients. A visit by a local technician revealed that our DSL was turned up too high for the capacity of the phone lines. The problem was solved by turning down the speed from 3 mbps to 1.5 mbps.
  12. Thanks. I do have a lot of scripts, including a couple that navigate to different windows based on window titles. I'll go through the possible culprits.
  13. I had 3 windows open looking at different tables from the same solution. One of the windows sort of froze...that is to say I could not close that window and I could not quit filemaker (had to eventually Force Quit). Within the frozen window, I could switch layouts, go to different records, run scripts, and enter data. I could not switch to the other 2 windows, which remained in the background regardless of where I clicked. Any ideas on what causes that behavior? Sorry if this is the wrong forum. I wasn't sure where to start.
  14. Ok...to answer my own question, it seems that my problem was solved via sorting the records.
