  3. Crestline, CA, Oct 6, 2014 - Dracoventions has released the only printer plug-in on the market that can restore the previously-selected printer after automating a print job. The new 2empowerFM Hands-Free Printer v3.4 has also been updated to support the upcoming OSX Yosemite release. All other 2empowerFM plug-ins were tested to already work with Yosemite. Dracoventions continues to innovate in printer automation technology and stay ahead of the curve in supporting new OSX and FileMaker versions as they're released.

You can learn more in the release notes. Plug-in updates can be found at 2empowerFM.com for both Macintosh and Windows. More About Hands-Free Printer Hands-Free Printer is a FileMaker Pro plug-in that lets you completely automate print jobs.

Your system's default printer is never changed.

  5. Crestline, CA - Dracoventions has released 2empowerFM Developer Assistant v3.0 for OS X with numerous new features, including the ability to replace text in scripts. Dracoventions has also released updates to bring FileMaker 14 compatibility to all 2empowerFM plug-ins except for Developer Assistant for Windows, which will be released later.Plug-in updates and more information can be found at 2empowerFM.com.New in Developer Assistant v3.0- Supports FileMaker 14's new Script Workspace.- Largely rewritten internally for faster searches and future expandability.- You can now find a previous match instead of just a next match.- Option to match "Contains", "Starts With", "Ends With", or "Whole Words".- Option to toggle if the search window remains always on top of other windows.- Find disabled script steps and more by optionally searching in the underlying XML that represents each script step.- Default script search is now performed on a translation of the XML representing each of FM's 167 unique script steps into a string that matches exactly what you see in the script editor. The search also includes metadata from the XML that's not visible in the script editor. The previous Developer Assistant only performed minimal translation of XML before searching which made it difficult to search for anything too long or complicated.- Default script search now includes the name of the script along with the script steps.- Option to display the exact text that was searched, making it easy to come up with additional searches for more specific XML or hidden metadata that you don't see in the script editor.Developer Assistant AdvancedNew Developer Assistant Advanced is an optional upgrade that extends Developer Assistant with the following advanced features:- Find All matches in any type of search. Matches track changes so they remain valid even if you move things around.- Replace text in script steps and in multi-line edit boxes.- Replace chosen matches in the find all matches window.Replacements let you quickly refactor your database by renaming $variables, SQL references, text-based parameters, product names, and anything else FileMaker can't rename for you. Paste script steps or calculations from another DB, then rename all the broken references so they work in the current DB. Use your imagination. Replacements are powerful and will save the advanced developer a lot of time.Learn more about Developer Assistant at developer.2empowerFM.comFileMaker 14 CompatibilityAll 2empowerFM plug-ins, except Windows Developer Assistant, have been updated to work with FileMaker 14. To avoid problems when running FileMaker 14, please visit 2empowerFM.com to download the latest version of any 2empowerFM plug-ins you have installed.The delay in the release of Windows Developer Assistant is due to major changes in FileMaker 14's new Script Workspace as well as a shift from using "win32" to ".NET" as a back end for various FileMaker dialogs. We can't give an ETA on when the Windows version of Developer Assistant 3.0 will be released, but we are working hard on getting it done.About 2empowerFM Plug-insOur family of 2empowerFM plug-ins save you time during FileMaker development and add powerful features to your FileMaker Pro solutions.

  7. Crestline, CA, April 22nd, 2013 -- Dracoventions has released 2empowerFM Menu Popper 3.0, the first FileMaker plug-in to let you add advanced dropdown menus to FileMaker layouts. Dropdowns can be used for things like type-ahead suggestions based on a search of multiple FileMaker fields. For example, as the user types, you might show matches in first names, last names, and email addresses, along with separator lines between each type of match. Showing suggested matches below your fields makes data entry faster and reduces duplicates. Dropdowns placed below FileMaker fields respond to up/down arrows, close when Esc is pressed, and even open again when the field is clicked in or first entered. If a match is chosen, you can populate other fields based on the record id of the chosen match, saving your users even more time. Menu Popper 3 also supports bold, italic, underline, and disabled styles in all its menus, along with bullets in its pop-up menus. Menus can now be kept in memory, combined together, and their items can be added or deleted. Menu items can even be shown conditionally based on what keys are held down, and a script can be run when a menu item is chosen. The new 2empowerFM Menu Popper is available immediately at menu.2empowerFM.com for both Macintosh and Windows. More Menu Popper Features - Save space on your layouts by changing a series of buttons into a single button that pops up a menu. - A sub-menu can be attached to any pop-up menu item. - Show any menu item and return any value when that item is clicked. - Construct a menu using a FileMaker "Value List", comma separated list, or any other list of items separated by whatever character you choose. - Create menus based on SQL queries, eliminating FileMaker table occurrences whose only purpose was to generate Value Lists used to show FileMaker menus. Pricing and Availability 2empowerFM Menu Popper 3.0 is available immediately at menu.2empowerFM.com This is a free update for those who purchased a license within the last year. Older customers may purchase upgrades at 50% off. New user licenses start at $49. Server and Developer licenses are also available.

  8. Crestline, CA, Oct 24, 2013 -- Dracoventions has released 2empowerFM Hands-Free Printer v3.1 to fix issues with the new OS X 10.9 Mavericks. No Mavericks compatibility problems were found with the remaining plug-ins in the 2empowerFM family. Updates are available immediately at 2empowerFM.com for both Macintosh and Windows. This release also brings a new licensing policy: Plug-in updates have always been free for a year, but now you also get minor updates beyond that year. Since OS X changed to a yearly release schedule, we found that too many people had to purchase a license upgrade almost yearly just to keep up with each new OS X, so we've changed our policy to eliminate that burden.

  9. Crestline, CA, July 25, 2011 -- Dracoventions announces the immediate availability of 2empowerFM Hands-Free Printer v2.5 for FileMaker Pro. This release adds the ability to control the two-sided printing option on Macintosh and also adds OS X 10.7 Lion compatibility. The rest of the 2empowerFM plug-in family has also been tested to be Lion compatible. About Hands-Free Printer Hands-Free Printer is the world's only FileMaker printer plug-in that can set every printer option in the Windows Print and Print Setup dialog independently along with similar options in the Mac OS X print dialog. Mark Anderson of Floristware, who helped beta test the plug-in, says, "Earlier today I mentioned a "cross-platform printer control" plugin to a FileMaker developer and he freaked out. I believe a lot of people need this and have just given up on hoping for it." 2empowerFM Hands-Free Printer is like a robot that clicks and types options in the Print dialog faster than the eye can see. That means it works with almost any printer, allowing you to: - Open the Print dialog, select your printer, set individual printer options, then print - all from a script with no user interaction required. - Allow users to choose a few print options from a FileMaker layout, then let Hands-Free Printer take care of the rest. - Guide users through complex print jobs where they are instructed to put in different types of paper or envelopes, then click a button to continue printing. - Set each printer option independently, not as a group like with FileMaker's "restore print settings" feature. A few independent settings can replace dozens or even hundreds of "restore print settings" steps. - Your system's default printer and default printer settings are never changed. - No special system software or settings are required. There is no need to turn on "access for assistive devices" on Macintosh and no Applescript or VBScript is used. OS X Tiger Although Hands-Free Printer does not currently support OS X 10.4 (Tiger), it does support FileMaker all the way back to 7.

  11. Crestline, CA, Jan 7, 2014 -- Dracoventions has released Beta 64-bit updates of all 2empowerFM plug-ins for use on FileMaker Server 13. That means our free SQL Runner, Script Scheduler, and Text Toolkit for regular expression and hash functions are all waiting for you to use with FileMaker's latest server technology. Dracoventions is proud to be one of the first plug-in vendors to offer the 64-bit upgrade. Plug-in updates can be found at 2empowerFM.com for both Macintosh and Windows, or see the release notes to learn about other minor fixes in this release. Why 64-bit? As you may have heard, FileMaker Server 13 requires all plug-ins to be 64 bit instead of 32 bit. If you try to load a 32-bit plug-in, it simply won't load, logging a cryptic error message to system.log on Mac that ends with the words "mach-o, but wrong architecture". On Windows, FileMaker Server won't even list plug-ins unless their filename ends in ".fmx64" instead of ".fmx". On Mac, it's not easy to tell if a plug-in supports 64 bit, but it can be done by running a command in the Terminal app: file <path to plug-in file>/Contents/MacOS/* If you see "64-bit" anywhere in the output, the plug-in supports 64 bit. Why FileMaker Server 13? FileMaker has let you interact with databases using your web browser for years through Instant Web Publishing. The problem has always been that the database doesn't look or behave quite the same, forcing developers to do extensive testing and implement workarounds to give IWP users a decent experience. FileMaker Server 13 introduces WebDirect, a completely new way of putting the database in a browser using modern HTML5 technology. WebDirect makes your database look and act almost like using it through a FileMaker Pro client, giving us all a new and easy way to access FileMaker databases on the go, even using a low-cost Chromebook. Even if you're not interested in WebDirect, FileMaker 13's "Perform Script on Server" script step lets you call server plug-ins without needing to install plug-ins on every FileMaker Pro client.
