  1. Hi Jeremiah, maybe this is a place we can pass Feedback to you about Carafe.FM? MrWatson Improvement: UX confusing when search finds nothing Hi Jeremiah, I'm still goggling at Carafe ... and loving every minute of it! In general fantastic job on the UX of the whole app! Congrats! One thing is confusing ... when you search for something and nothing is found there is no feedback ... I then made the mistake of thinking the two little arrows to the right of the search box are for navigating the search term ... but clicking them doesn't work ... and then I realised, th
  2. Hi! using FM18v3 I defined an import, update using key with option :add remaining. Odd enough, when running the import for the first time, the key field remains empty. (Unexpected) As a result the second time I run the script I get new records, but now the keyfieldfield is filled. (Expected) The third time the import also runs as expected ( no new records ). I fixed this by defining this script in FM18 using an if. Eventually, I launched FM17 and re-did the script. Now it works like it should. Anyone else can replicate this? Kind regards,
  3. I have stumbled upon a strange bug in one of my Databases concerning a value list. We have a table containing part numbers, which is related to a table containing "revisions" for the part numbers, which is related to a table of inspections for the "revisions". On a layout of the Inspections table, I have a value list. This value list selects the UUID of the revision, but displays the Part Number for the user. This has worked perfectly for several months. However, this morning one of my users discovered that he was unable to located "0000194" from this list. At first I thought ma
  4. Hello, I am developing an app where users may login with Android or IOS via Webdirect. On IOS (safari) via Webdirect-- everything is fine. With Android(chrome)-- anytime the script refreshes the screen or switches panels-- all uncommitted data is lost. any ideas or workarounds?-- my script checks validation and i really need to refresh to trigger conditional formatting also hoping to have a multi-panel entry so the user does not have to scroll to the bottom (layout has about 100 fields) thanks!
  5. Hello everyone, I have found a stange behaviour with filemaker. I have two tables linked by a third one. I want to navigate using the portal. But if I use a script on layout exit, then the behaviour is abnormal. Please have a look at the enclosed database and try normal, then abnormal layout. Please tell me if you consider that it is a bug or not. If it is a bug, should I report it to Filemaker Inc. and how? Thanks for your help, Regards Possible bug.fmp12
  6. My client is experiencing empty dialog windows-- starting with the Launcher. She is running FileMaker Pro 15 - 32bit on windows. She reinstalled several times with same result. any ideas? thanks!
  7. I would like to see if anyone could help me to verify if the problem I am having is a bug in Filemaker. I have recently upgraded my network from Filemaker 13 to 14. In 13 I did not experience this issue. It seems that in Filemaker 14, when a particular Hindi character is pasted into a Filemaker field it crashes the database. I have tested this on numerous machines within my network with the same result. I am hoping that someone will run this simple test for me and report back if it happened to them as well. I just need someone to create a database, create one text field. Create a new re
  8. Dear all,  I'm having a problem in my Filemaker solution when insertion files in a container via script and also drag and drop. It worked fine fore more than 5 years and now i'm getting this strange massage (attached). The problem is not stable, because sometimes we don't see it. Also in some Macs it doesn't work at all.  I've tried to find a solution in the web, but i didn't found any solution. Is this a filemaker bug?  I really need an urgent helpÂ
  9. Hello, This is my first time using this forum so please excuse any mistakes.. I have setup a standard pos system with DB for invoicing a customer, inventory and purchasing inventory from Maker. The DB is setup in such was so that I have a layout for Invoicing the customer and within the invoice are the line items for each product that I carry in the inventory. The Inventory is defined with barcode, description, prices and most importantly stock. The purchase order is setup the same way as such so the i have layout with purchase order sheet, then within are the line item with barcodes, desc
  10. Hi guys, I have a strange problem with a value list in one of my databases. I added a value list and set it to display a list from a field of employees. It worked for a while but after closing the database and re-opening it, the drop-down value list no longer works. I then checked in File>Manage>Value Lists and my new value list has no name anymore and I cannot delete it or edit it, it is just completely bugged out! I thought I would try again and re-create the value list and set it as the drop-down, but exactly the same thing happened, it has no name and is undeletable/uneditable! Now
  11. I excitedly saw that 13.0v5 was just released, and it said that they were fixing the annoying "allow/deny incoming network connections" bug. I dutifully upgraded. Not only did the bug persist (!), but it introduced a new one -- for the database I access, I have the password saved to keychain, but it started asking me all the time to enter the password, and whether I wanted to save it to keychain. Great. But, I was able to fix both issues (yay!). For the incoming network connections issue. First, quit FM. Second, go to the Firewall settings on your Mac, and edit the options.
  12. Hi all, Â Any FM12 file I open up (tried 2 so far) in FM13 results in Pop-up menus only showing the ID, and not the second field. See attached screen grabs. Â I've checked all the settings... "show values only from second field" is definitely checked. Â Anyone else noticed this?
  13. I came across a bug today when using Set Field [] where you sum up the first rep of a repeating field without explicitly stating it is the first rep and the target being another repeating field regardless of if it is in the same field or not. In other words, if you do not explicitly state the field with rep 1 such as MyField[1] or GetRepetition (MyField; 1) but rather just refer to it as MyField it will ignore the value. However if you use it in a calculation field or the target field is non repeating field it works as I would expect. I made a test file and I tested it both with FM11
  14. Hi There, On windows 7 x64 with FIlemaker 12 advanced V4 when using the "export field content" script function the content of the field is written in mac (roman) format and not ansi (utf8 would be better btw). This is a serious issue because some chars (carriage for example) are not read correctly under the platform (windows). Has anyone notice this behavior? It's a know bug/issue? Thanks a Lot, Rob
  15. Mac OSX 10.8.4 2 accounts on computer, both admin (keeping a consulting gig separate from my main account) FileMaker Adv 12.4 Issue: In one of my accounts, FM12Adv will not open. I've repaired my permissions on this volume. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, but I still get no love from FileMaker in this one account. I've attached the crash log. If anyone can advise, that'd be great.crash.zip
  16. The video shows the issue best, but to summarize: I am using a portal to create related records, the relationship utilizes a global field. Somehow, the portal showed data from a related record that doesn't seem to exist. If I go to the related table and show all records, there are no records. If I perform a find, a record is found, at which point the toolbar shows a 1/0 Found records. I've seen this twice now; once in a FileMaker 11 solution, this one in FileMaker 12. Has anyone else seen this before?
