  1. FMP 13 - Web Direct - Improperly displaying list layout with sub-summary parts (public link for this doc) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zIbF13RSlaW230-NlYicGZxHB3FsYvQt-U0fFL9uwEU/edit?usp=sharing&pli=1 I am having a problem with Filemaker Pro 13’s Web Direct handling of a simple list layout with sub-summaries. The sub summaries, when added, seem to be cutting off the first (or last*) row of detail in the body. * If the sub-summary is above the body it cuts off the first row. * If the sub-summary is trailing the body, it cuts off the last row of detail. (this exam
  2. First, a little background... Â We discovered that after upgrading to Office 2013, FileMaker (both versions 12 and 13) will hang when the attached email script is run. This calls up the default email client, populates the Subject field, and then if you enter a TO address, some text in the body, and click the "X" to save a draft in Outlook, FileMaker freezes up and won't respond, resulting in having to kill the FM.exe process in Task Manager. The email draft is successfully saved in Outlook 2013, however, but FM doesn't seem to get a response back from Outlook and hangs in limbo. Â All th
  3. Hello peeps, I'm just getting to grips with Filemaker 14, skipped 13 so this is the first time I've had the opportunity to play with the popovers which I've been much looking forward to. I have to admit that I'm a little surprised that data entry hasn't been made much easier with the advent of popovers. Creating a data entry interface is certainly easier and looks good too, but the process of entering new record criteria and confirming or cancelling the process is much the same. Currently I use global fields to place on a popover and when data entry is confirmed scripts will: Copy the ent
  4. Hi all, running into an issue with Quicklook on Yosemite. When we run this script: It causes Filemaker to open two instances of qlmanage, wait a while, then crash. I've heard there are difficulties getting Quicklook to behave in Filemaker on Yosemite, so I began exploring other options. I am aware of how to open a container file automatically using the computer's default settings for the file, but I was wondering if someone could help me understand how to open the contents of a container with Preview for OSX. Thanks for any insight you can give!
  5. i want to be able to monitor what websites people are visiting and create a report from with in filemaker, all i want is to only be able to capture the urls that users visited, any possible solutions would be greatly appreciated.

  7. We just upgraded to FileMaker 13 and Filemaker 13 Server running on a server with Windows 12 server OS Our database contains inventory of some 200 thousand Items, each Item has a photo associated with it. The Photos are located in a folder on the server. Is there a way I can relate the Item# and the Photo saved as the same name as the Item# that is located in a File Folder. Item# = 12345 Photo = 12345.jpg (the Folder name is MASTERIMAGE) I tried this "imagewin:/c://‪MASTERIMAGE/Item#"&".jpg" but it won't work Can anyone help?
  8. 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?
  9. Hello, I think I need help from the experts in the big community.  I am new to filemaker and my boss wanted to create a database that will track dealers, invoices, inventory and sales. I am almost complete but I don't know how to create a genealogy for the dealers. The business is direct selling, and for the dealers, we need to track the recruiter of the new dealer. OR the number of recruits of the dealers.  It is just like a simple family tree with more extending branches. You know, like a hierarchy with the first dealer on the topmost. I really need help guys coz I don't know what
  10. Hi, i installed MySQL ODBC 5.1 driver on windows server several times before for previous versions of FileMaker and it worked, and still works just fine. Now i am trying to do the same thing on Windows 2012 Server with Windows 8 platform and for FileMaker 13 Server and client, and with the newest driver 5.3. I am installing a 32 bit driver on the 64 bit system in the proper folder (...SysWOW...) as mentioned, everything same as i did previouslly. The drivers are successfully connected to the MySQL database. The ODBC on the FileMaker server is enabled. ISSUE: When i open FileMaker 13 it
  11. FileMaker Themes Best Practices In an earlier article we discussed FileMaker WebDirect and how to optimize your solution. This optimization relied on using FileMaker Themes. In this article, we explore using FileMaker 13's new feature to create custom themes and styles. A custom theme will allow you to create a custom appearance in your application while maintaining an optimized solution. Theme optimization will benefit the entire FileMaker platform including FileMaker Go, Pro, and WebDirect.
  12. I downloaded Filemaker Pro 13 and Filemaker 13 Server trial versions running on Windows 8. I have an app I developed in FM 12 that I want to host on FM server 13 using WebDirect. The server install on Windows 8 went well but I get an "Registration with directory service failed" error message when I test the directy service settings. I have the following questions with regard to this installation: Do I have to install Active Directory on Windows 8? Which IP address do I use to set in the Entry Point: The Filemaker Server, Web Server or the Web Publishing Engine IP address? Any help
  13. Upgrading a client from FM11 to FM13. When we setup the new server, we copied over the original high res images, but not the thumbnails. As expected, SuperContainer is generating the needed thumbnails, however they are low quality and have vertical lines through the images (see attached). Â Here are the New server specs: FileMaker Server 13 SuperContainer 2.896 Java update 51 Windows Server 2012 R2 Â The troubleshooting steps we have completed: - uninstalling/reinstalling Java - downgrading Java to 7 update 25 - replaced SuperContainer 2.896 with 2.89 (with update 25) Â The sug
  14. FileMaker WebDirect is new to the FileMaker platform and allows you to publish your database to the web like never before. Real-time updates, a defining characteristic of the FileMaker experience, have made their way to the web browser now.

  15. Getting really weird results from copying file from SuperContainer to local user where the file becomes renamed as "filename=ThisFile.pdf", but I'm not specifying a filename at all. When I try to force the function to use the "filename" key=value pair, it does nothing. Can anyone else recreate this? Works fine on earlier versions of FileMaker and OSX.
  16. FileMaker 13 introduced a number of very useful enhancements to the relationship graph, none of which are included in the help file or release notes. Use these techniques to increase your productivity. Check out our new article. http://www.dbservices.com/articles/filemaker-relationship-graph-what-they-did-not-tell-you
  17. http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11953 A heads up to anyone not having read this. Also, may I ask if this list is exhaustive? Are there any behavior changes that are not miscellaneous? And a correction: I think fm inadvertently posted the "Changes to Filemaker Network Settings Dialog Box" misc. change twice in this list.

  19. Hi there, I've just got notification of FM13 release, and I've been planning to implement the Plastic 2 plugin, as we already use MerchantWarrior for our processing (in fact it was me who suggested they contact 360works). I'm very wary of OS X server 10.8 & 10.9 Java issues, as I've dealt with them with no good outcome for a different app. I notice the release notes for FM 13 say: 1.6. The FileMaker Server 13 installer installs Java Runtime Environment 7 (JRE 7) update 25. On OS X, if you have a later update of JRE 7 installed, then JRE 7 update 25 is not installed. On Window
