  1. Filemaker Go 15 instantly crashing on launch(iPhone) since IOS 14.2 upgrade. Anyone else?
  2. Hi have a PDF that I annotated on my iPad. I upload this pdf to a container field in FM Go. If I go to my desktop FM Pro, I can see the annotations just fine in the container preview however on FM Go, the annotations do not display in the preview. If I export the pdf from the the container, the annotations are indeed there. What can I do to get the annotations to show in the container preview in FM Go (as they do on FM Pro on the desktop).
  3. I'm on iOS. I'm using iOS shortcuts and FM Go. In FM Go, I send a container's PDF to iOS shortcuts via a x-callback-url with an "input" of the Base64Encode PDF. I annotate the PDF in iOS Shortcuts. I then send the annotated PDF back to FM Go to insert it back into the container...however there seems to be some characters in the Base64encode fmp url parameter that can't be passed in the URL coming back. Is there something I can do to further encode this Base64 script parameter (that is the annotated PDF) so that it will pass back to FM Go via the URL.
  4. Hi -- I have a few iPad solutions I created awhile back, where I hid the upper and lower toolbars from view. but as I recall, there was a swing gesture I could use to reveal them -- I thought it was swiping down with 3 fingers . . . but this seems no longer to work? Can someone jog my memory on this? I just need to be able to reveal the "Find" function temporarily.
  5. Hey Folks Im sure this is asked but I can't figure it out. I don't want to link a file in the data schema - I just want to open it from an existing file while in go Created a button with single step, "Insert from URL Target:Selector::g_insertURL ; "fmp://Cleaners.fmp12" where g_insertURL is a global field and is on the layout. Get error 5 Command Invalid FM 19 on Mac Thoughts?
  6. I defined a calendar in a test solution on my Mac. Looks great. On the iPad Pro, the calendar does appear in the layout, but tapping on an event (that was defined as editable when I created an event on the Mac) does nothing. Am. I missing something?
  7. Can anyone point me to resources or methods for annotating PDFs in FileMaker go on the iPad? Go Draw does not support PDFs. I’d like to draw on a pdf and then save it in a container. I assume I have to do this outside fm go and then bring it back into the container. What technique requires the fewest steps?
  8. [Cross Post - I posted this as Claris Community, but didn't get any bites after 24 hours] I am trying to scroll to the active record in List view. It works perfectly in Pro (19). I am running the script from Go (iPhone) using the FileMaker Network (lightning cable to my Mac) I cannot get it to work in Go. It goes to the right record and field because I can manually scroll to it, but the script won't do it. Here is the simple script: ====================================== Go to Field [Select/Perform; Person::FirstName] Scroll Window [To Selection] ==
  9. I have a shopping list app for personal use. On the MacBook it works fine. I have a global search field which searches through the list of existing items. I have a script trigger (On Object Modify) on the field which allows a 'type ahead' search when each letter is entered. On the phone in FileMaker Go, the keyboard drops off the screen and then reappears when I type each letter. Pretty disconcerting to use. Is there anyway to stop this please?? I have attached the script I use for the type ahead. Thanks.
  10. We have a Filemaker Go on iPads and there is a layout with portal rows, when scrolling through it hesitates and you must wait to scroll down. We have offline files on the iPad, although it happens when we connect to the Filemaker server as well. Any suggestions? Thank you, Caroline
  11. Hi. I am creating a small app for my iphone but for some reason the keyboard will not display. I have to press on the symbol (3 lines and an arrow) to display it. I have tried all the different combinations but without success. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
  12. Can someone help with this please. I have tried all the combinations but my keyboard does not show automatically on the iPhone??
  13. I have two iPads connected to FM server. For some reason one ipad (5th Gen running 13.5) will not complete the navigation scripts and shows error messages (no records match this find criteria), however the 7th Gen running on 13.1.1 works fine..... Issue has only begun after purchasing the second, newer iPad. I cannot for the life of me work out what is wrong, or how to troubleshoot and would love some guidance please!! Here is a screengrab of one of the scripts and related layout: fm go script issue.tiff Orders iPad layout.tiff
  14. Hello, I have a script with a single step, attached to a button. Step: Open URL: "prizmogo://x-callback-url/captureText?input=camera&ocr=el&x-success=fmp://$/MYFILE?/script=Dialogue" When I press the button, the Prizmo Go application fires up, I take a photo of the text, it recognizes it but the application stays open. I want to close the application and return the results to FileMaker. What am I doing wrong? Anyone? Thanks.
  15. Trying to display a pdf stored on the iPad AT A SPECIFIC PAGE NUMBER or 'DESTINATION' tag within the pdf document from FMGo. I've tried both a Webviewer and Open URL call but the #page= and #destinationtag appended to the filepath (eg //MyFile.pdf#page=20) is ignored. Any ideas how to open and display a PDF at specific page?
  16. Hi Folks, This maybe a noob issue but I'm having a problem in Filemaker Go creating a PDF and inserting into a container field and then print to a mobile receipt printing. I can create the PDF in TemporaryPath which it does and add it to a container field, but the PDF is more than one page. It needs to be only one page to print to the receipt printer. If I do the same in Filemaker on my PC the PDF saves as one page as it should. Example attached. Is this a limitation in FMGO ? or am I missing something You help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Brandan
  17. Hello. Working on my first FMGo solution. I've locked the zoom and turned off the menus so that things aren't crazy bouncing around all the time. I have a large detailed graphic in the middle of the layout. I would like the user to be able to zoom and slide that graphic to see more detail and or simply move around the visible portion. Can I use gestures to do this? (Pinch, expand, and finger slide, or whatever that's called.) If so, how would I go about figuring this out (I couldn't find an example anywhere). Thanks in advance for any help!
  18. Our people out in the field take photos which go directly into the container fields, we would like those photos to automatically transfer to the camera roll/gallery. I know there is an export command and that would allow the techs to export and choose the location, save image etc... But that is a tad too complicated for them. Any suggestions on how to automate this process, the script for export field contents doesn't have a choice to save to camera roll. Thank you! Caroline
  19. Hello, I am starting to implement a solution within FileMaker Go. At the moment I do have video files which are showing in FileMaker Pro but not in FileMaker Go. When importing the video files I've selected "Store only a reference". The file itself reside on an external drive which has been connected through the Apple AFP protocol. When looking at the properties on the iPad it shows "moviemac:/directory name/filename.mp4". I would have thought the file should have been named "moviemac:/Volumes/directory name/filename.mp4". The iPad is connected through the ethernet (RJ45) d
  20. Hi All and Happy New Year! We would like to have a shortcut to our database on the iPad, so instead of clicking on Filemaker Go and going to the launch center and it displaying databases., we want the endusers to click on the database shortcut so it goes right to the login screen to make it one step and more intuitive for the users. We have an offline file on the iPad, and there is also the file hosted on the Filemaker. We sync the offline with the online version via MirrorSync. Anyway we trying to eliminate confusion on which file to open. Thank you, any help is always appreciated!
  21. Greets, all: I'm confused: If you go to FileMaker's page concerning screen stencils (https://support.filemaker.com/s/article/Using-Screen-Stencils-to-design-iOS-friendly-layouts-using-FileMaker-Go-14-or-higher-1503693076890?language=en_US), it lists the Width x Heigh resolution settings for the iPad 10.5" (2018) as follows: Orientation Width Height (UI shown) Height (UI Hidden) Portrait 834 1004 1092 44 44 Landscape 1112
  22. I have created a number of free-standing backgammon quizzing files in Filemaker for use on an iPad. What I want is to allow people to go to my website on their ipads, click on a download button, and have the file imported to their device and open in Filemaker Go. Then they can use it on their own -- no connection to a hosted file is necessary, no further data updates to the file are needed. I am hosting the filemaker quiz files on Google Drive. When I initially set this up, it was working fine - - and it still works fine if I try it on my desktop machine -- the file appears in my downlo
  23. hi all, I was tasked to great a database so the sales team can take order while on the road, these ipad will be connected to the net at all time either with WiFi or Cell service.

To place the orde
  24. I have all of my credit card payment items in a file with fields for payment date and Reconciled. I enter the payments when I become aware of them and some are entered with a payment ahead of the actual date of entry. I wish to know what my actual bank balance is at any time which means subtracting items not reconciled. I make all entries on my iPhone as they occur and from time to time via Filemaker Go synchronise with my Mac. on the Mac I can run a script that sorts firstly by reconciliation and then by date ascending and this places the itms not yet reconciled at the end making easy to dete
  25. Is it possible to take photos on your iPhone and in Filemaker Go select multiple images from the camera roll and add them to the database all at once. It doesn't appear this is possible but I thought I'd throw it out there. Thank you in advance for any suggestions. Caroline
