  1. We have containers that we drag and drop PDFs into, that are externally stored and the field on the layout is formatted as a PDF. I know I've done this in the past where I wrote a little script that sets a temporary path and when it's clicked the enduser can view in Adobe. The script is simple: it sets the a variable to a temporary path, then exports the field contents to automatically open. I cannot get the script to work. It seems so simple... maybe my mind isn't working right today. So my next idea was to make popover button with the pdf container in, interactive so when the user click
  2. In a script, I select a container field, choose "Insert Picture" choose a scanned PDF file then GetThumbnail(MainContainer;50;50) - it just leaves a "?" in the thumbnail field. When I import a batch using the Import Records Script Step -> Folder -> Picture and Movie Files, using Secure Storage, choose the option to add a thumbnail to my thumbnail container field, (importing the same pdf file) it generates the thumbnail perfectly. For user interface reasons, my users need to be able to click my import button, choose a pdf file from anywhere on their drive, and import it into a cont
  3. 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?
  4. Scribe 4 - FileMaker OCR Scanning Demo Video Today, we wanted to share a practical way to use the new FileMaker OCR and PDF integration features in Scribe 4. If you have a stack of paper with information you need to access from FileMaker, you can easily automate this process with Scribe. In this demo video, we will show how you can scan in a stack of paper and extract the text (using OCR) into FileMaker, and have it on individual (spliced) PDF pages.

  5. I am using Filemaker Pro 17. I have created a container field with 'interactive content (PDF, MP3, etc.)' checked in the Data tab in the Inspector. PDF's won't upload. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Reader DC. I've tried other PDF files and they just won't load. What am I doing wrong? (I've done is successfully in the past with Filemaker 15 with the exact same PDF files). I'm using a MacBook Pro with MacOS Mojave Version 10.14.2 (18C54).
  6. Hello -- I would like to open pdf files that are stored in a secure external manner. Only the first page of multipage files show in a FM container window (if I';m not mistaken) so I am wondering about using Preview (Mac, of course). I can retrieve the file path to the secure file by processing the text output of the container file, and then use it as a variable filename in a Send Event script step, but Preview cannot open it. Any suggestions?
  7. Hi all, I'm using trying to add an image to a PDF in Scribe, the process works well, however the image I'm using is a PNG with transparency. The image is stored in FM and the transparency is retained, if I export the field contents, it is retained too. When the image is added to the PDF, it loses the transparency, and the are replaced with white, which means I can't see what's under it. Has anyone else had this issue? Is it resolved/resolvable, or is this something where I need to find an alternative solution? Thanks
  8. I am trying to get a page count from a PDF file stored in a container field. ScribeDocLoad is successful. Next I'm attempting to use ScribeDocReadValue to get the PDFPageCount. The variable $LastPage is set to ScribeDocReadValue( "PDFPageCount" ) This parameter, or any other of the metadata values listed in the documentation, results in an error like "Reading values is not supported for the file PDFPageCount" The documentation reads like this: Am I fundamentally misunderstanding what this is supposed to do? The PDF file has no formal "fields." Its just a scanned PD
  9. Howdy from Texas! I am trying to change a little bit of Groovy that stamps a given phrase at a specified location on an existing PDF. The original code operates on files however I want to simply specify container fields as input and output. I did successfully change the input (src) to come FROM a container field. I can't seem to figure out how to return the resulting object to a container (dest) directly. I am passing the container parameters as: "myTable::inputContainer" and "myTable::outputContainer". Can someone please point me in the right direction here?
  10. Hello I have inherited a database in Filemaker 12 on Windows, but I am completely new to databases. I have a script which generates and saves a pdf for each person using fields from their record. This works well. I then have a second script which is meant to email each of these pdfs to the corresponding person. I have included screen shots of the script and the "send mail" options. When I tested it by putting only my own email address in the To: box, it sent me hundreds of emails each with a different name in the text, and the correct corresponding pdf attached, as expected.
  11. I have several reports that use Google Charts displayed through a web viewer to display a "'gas gauge" type of chart. This is a very popular style for our dashboard reports to the point where it is a requirement. I originally started using them in FileMaker 14 and they worked great. When FileMaker 15 came out they wouldn't work at first but then did after an update to the code. I'm now testing Filemaker 16 and they're back to not working properly. They do display on the screen just fine but if you try to print preview, print, or Send to PDF they do not show. Does anybody ha
  12. Hi there. I have a list view layout that gets saved to PDF and print. On my computer everything looks good. However, on clients computer, the right side is cut off. I have the margin view showing and everything seems to be within the lines. I am using windows and client on Apple.
  13. Good morning everyone I created a database runtime solution with FileMaker Pro 15 advanced. The program must export the contents of a form in PDF format. In a solution that runs under FileMaker I could use the command "Save as PDF" but this command does not work in a runtime solution. Could someone tell me how I could make this function? thank you so much.
  14. Yesterday, I tried to move a script that creates a PDF ( and mails it ) to a server side script, as the "save records as PDF" script step is now supported in server side scripts. It did not work correctly, and generated an error 800 (file could not be created on disk) in the server log. Rather generic error. I changed the script to point to a blank layout instead. No more error. A nice blank PDF was created. I put a text box with "test" in it on the layout, Arial 12 point. -> error 800 I removed the text box and put a png graphic on the layout -> OK I put a text
  15. My end goal is to have a button that, when clicked: 1. Opens a pdf form from my server 2. Fills in the form using data entered into FileMaker (I'm using FileMaker 10) I'm on step one and and trying to use the "Open File" script, however it's not working. Can the "Open File" script be used to open non-Filemaker files, such as PDFs?

  17. I have a solution to track employee expense reports which contains a container to store a pdf of related receipts. Currently, I create a multiple page pdf of receipts in Apple Preview, then paste it into the container. Was wondering if it was possible to create a FM script or AppleScript to drop a single, additional pdf into the container and "automatically" create multiple page pdf with the existing container contents? Thanks in advance!
  18. LS, We recently migrated from FM14 to FM15 and suddenly some invoices come out strange after the saveAsPdf script step . ( see pic ). When in preview mode everything seems to be ok and is printed to a printer ok. Theme : Classic, Font used : Calibri size 11 and 12. Problem occurs on Mac 10.11 and Win10 with FM15. When I do a print ( to preview ( mac )) and then save as pdf everything is also ok, so it seems to be related to the FM pdf renderer. However, not every invoice has this issue, but I wonder how data could cause this behaviour. Best regards !
  19. LS, All of a sudden the saveAsPdf script step produces this ( see picture ) result. It is an invoice, with almost all data screwed up. It looks like all letters were printed in the same column in stead of from left to right. To make things more complex, not all invoices print like this although they are using the same layout to print from. When I print to preview ( mac ) and the use the save as pdf options the invoice comes out great. How can this be ?
  20. Hi i created a report that gets saved intoa pdf into a field - all working great. just one interesting issue , ,not sure what it means , on the bottom of the layout i inserted a picture of the directors signature , which is a must for every report , however in browse mode it works fine but when i save it apdf for some reason it gets omitted , any idea if that is a filemaker limitation? i actually have the companies logo at the top and that is showing up correctly.
  21. Hi i created a certificate and want that when it is clicked to save it it gets created into a pdf and then imported into the cetification container field , however for some reason i am recieving some error in my script , the pdf does not save at all. see script below: i would appreciate if someone could tell me where i went wrong why my pdf is not saving and if this is the method to save the pdf to a container
  22. Hi Forum! I have a script which sends an email to [current record] . Now I want to attach a PDF to the email automatically using the script. So far I have tried with ... filewin:/$driveLetter/$targetDir/$[name_of_unique_field_from_FM] as variable file path. But nothing is attached when I run the script. I hope you can help.
  23. 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
  24. I have done a lot of research and don't see a solution. What I want to do is send and existing record atttached as a PDF via email in Filemaker go to wherever. everything I read says I have to save the record as PDF first? Then create a file path to the specific record. But that will clutter up the IOS too much. Kinda like print to pdf with email attachment and name the pdf a value from a field. I know this is probably possible, but I can't get it to work. So I'm reaching out to you Genius' if there is a solution that just creates an email attachment of the current layout and current record
  25. The Insert PDF context menu item is greyed out on my container field when I have my database open locally. My Google Fu has failed me on solving this. My container field is on a layout, not in a portal. I have Interactive Content checked. I have a PDF viewer working in IE. (Zeon - I do not know where I got this plugin - I very rarely use IE.). I also have an older version of NitroPDF Pro which I use daily, but no IE plugin at the moment. The container field Storage settings are "Store container data externally" and using Open storage option. I also tried the secure sto
