How can I extract content from sub summary layout objects using? https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/index.html#page/FMP_Help/getlayoutobjectattribute.html
I'm able to grab the content from the first subsummary, not the remaining however.
set field( output; GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'header', 'content' ) & GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'row', 'content' ) & GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'footer', 'content' ) ) works fine, the bad thing is that only row 1 finds its way to the output-field.

I have a layout for printing on a letterhead and have inserted an image file as the Background Image to serve as the letterhead. Printing and Save to PDF work as expected, but for the life of me I cannot get the background image to display correctly in Preview mode.
Not displaying correctly in Preview mode is not terrible except, when the client does a print preview and it doesn't line up, there will be questions...even though it print correctly.
Basically, it looks like the background image has a pre-determined padding applied to it at the top, but all parts and objects are set to padding 0.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Preview mode - letterhead has padding
Printed PDF - the letterhead is up where it should be:
I'm using some script to direct users to different layouts when the access my database via WebDirect. At the moment all users are directed to one of two layouts using the following
#t ( Case ( APP__Application::Type = "Long" ; "Application Detail WEB" ; "Application Detail Rapid WEB" ) )
What I actually need to happen is that when a "reviewer" logs in they are directed to "Application Detail Review WEB" for everyone else the above code is correct.
Any help would be much appreciated.
I generate an invoice by a report.
The work is totalled and then VAT/GST is calculated and the total work + GST = the invoice value.
These 3 fields appear in a trailing grand summary. One above thew other above the other:
Total this invoice
Depending upon the number of items in the invoice the invoice may have more than one page. Again depending on the precise number of items in the invoice I can finish up having 2 of the 3 summary fields on one page and the remaining one on another page.
I would like to be able to print the invoice knowing that the 3 summary fields will be kept together irrespective of the number of items, or pages or where the page break occurs.
I cannot see how this can be achieved.
I would like to ask question for which I didn't find answer. I have several filemaker dbs which differs only by data entered. All tables and fields are same. My question is if it's somehow possible share layout design across all those databases because occasionally I need to modify that layout. Change it in all dbs could be time consuming. Of course I can have empty "design db" where I could re-import data after layout change but again it could be time consuming too.
Also I'm wondering if is possible to use field name (in layout) without any table name and table would be used relative by table defined in layout? (Shows records from)
