fmp17 Modifier key problems

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A google search reveals that FMP not recognizing modifier keys is at least a decade old problem. It's hard to resist making some kind of a comment but I will resist. At any rate, it seems that restarting the computer, at least on a Mac, resolves the problem, (until it pops up again). 

My question is this: Is it understood what is it in the restarting process that corrects the problem, and if it is, is it something that can be imitated with some kind of script, command, etc?

Thanks

This issue I have found myself it's more tied to macOS - where FileMaker going deaf to the active modifier keys.

What is not true?

  • something in that thread
  • restarting doesn't remedy the issue
  • not OS issue but a FileMaker issue ignoring inputs from OS?

I cannot reproduce your problem so i cannot say what causes it. What's more, I have never heard of such problem before reading your post. 

Do you have any system-enhancing utilities (such as a text expander) installed? That would be my first suspect. Do have have any plugins installed? That would be my second.

For the record, I too have had this issue for quite some time. The only fix until now was a full reboot.

To your point, I am using TextExpander and quit the application. This has resolved my issue without the need to reboot.

Thanks!!

      I don't really know what I'm missing here.
      I have two windows next to each other. I want to activate a Script Trigger on Record Load (I have tried On Layout Enter as well) , and it does that fine as long as I'm only having one window open. But not when I'm switching between the windows. Ie, I want the script to run when I enter the Window.
      Isn't this supposed to work?

      Excel and Filemaker calculates the difference between two dates differently. I always thought that when you subtract two date from one another, the result was the number of full days between the dates.

      For example:  Calculate the difference between 1/15/19 – 1/9/19.

      There are 5 full days between these dates (10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th). However, FM and Excel calculations do not result in 5, and they don’t even agree with each other!

      In Excel, Difference = 7

      In FM, Difference = 6

      It seems that when you subtract two dates in Excel the result includes the starting and ending dates and therefore it is not the number full days between the dates. In FM the result seems to include either the starting or ending date (not both), and therefore it also is not the number of full days between the dates.

      What gives?

      Hi everybody,
      looks like I do have a sort of rookie problem here. 
      I created a subsummary report which is sorted by a break field and all works fine. All is fine in layout and preview mode. Just in browse mode I seem to have a problem.  There is a large grey empty area just underneath of the subsummary part showing.  Anyone with an idea what it is I messed up here? I already googled but just found 1 similar report from 2010. Sort of optically annoying.
      Any help is highly appreciated.

      Hi everyone
      I am working with filemaker on and off for the last recent years but, no doubts about it, I am still a rookie.
      lately I have created a db similar to a booking engine for shore excursions for river cruise ships. Lots of modules, layouts, scripts etc. As I really have to work with my limited knowledge, it took a long time and is not really constructed in a way any pro would do it with a lot of workarounds and probably sort of unorthodox. However, it works just fine for me and I am sort of proud, to have gotten to the point where I am. However, I am afraid, that I corrupted the whole thing somehow.
      No I am trying to integrate a sort of an accounting layout consisting out of a summary or subsummary report. The report contains fields from  4 related tables. and a summary field. The db has some 5 different tables and around 35 different active layouts. First problem is that my subsummary part, which I created with the New Layout/Report assistant, does not show up at all in browse mode. I have tried to base the layout on all 4 tables, but it seems not to be working.
      The second problem is that the summary field is not working and producing some random weired numbers instead of the summary of the field it is assigned to. On the attached pics I have placed the summary field into the bottom in order to demonstrate the results. In every ordinary case it is located in the subsummary part. I have played around here a lot. deleted it, created a new field, created a new layout etc, etc, but it just won't calculate the value of the field it is assinged to.
      Anyone any idea, of what am I doing wrong here? Tnx for any help in advance.
