Hello everyone, My company uses File Maker to keep a record of customers' addresses. When looking at a given customer, I would like to be able to copy the whole address block (as displayed on screen) to be able to paste it somewhere else (for instance, in an email, or on a Word document). You can't do this from the layout for data entry, but we have another layout showing the address block as a succession of merge fields (see screen shot). I added a copy button, all it does is copy what's on screen to the clipboard. The problem is that, even though the layout is separated by carriage returns like this: <<contact>> <<name>> <<street>> (etc) When I copy and paste I get a succession of data separated by empty spaces (tabs), like this: contact name street Is there a way to add a line break between the merge fields so when I copy and paste to Word or else, I get this instead? contact name street Apologies if this is very simple, I am completely new to File Maker. Any pointers would be gratefully appreciated! Cheers

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.

I'm sure there is a way to do this more efficiently than I am doing this. An outside application is passing data back into FMP on the clipboard. This data needs to be massaged before it can be used and the way for me to do this is in a script variable. The current solution is to 'paste' the data from the clipboard into a global field and then to set the variable to that global field. Is there a way, some function I am missing, to set the contents of the data directly into the variable without having to use a global field as a staging area? Thanks in advance for the forum's thoughts.
