As a complete novice to FMP, I'm attempting my very first database. We rely on storing our contracts on Google & Dropbox. I've been trying to either embed the pdf's into a "tab", or (my preferred option) to have an "Add URL" button to link to the online pdf.
I tried adding a field and copying and pasting the URL, but it's not clickable, and I'd need to add another field for each pdf/contract.
Is there a better more efficient way to do this?
I have setup a layer with web viewer. I can maneuver within the website just fine but, I would like it if when the website loads it would send 4 carriage returns to get to a specific field within the website.
If anyone has any ideas on how I can accomplish this it would be greatly appreciated.

Have copied a shell script which works in other settings onto a new machine
Changes paths - it zips a backup folder and does a ditto command to copy as a zip file to an external drive
I worked out that I needed to change the sudoers file to allow no password access to the script. Running the shell script in terminal was requiring a password, now it doesn't
Added the fmserver user to that too.
If I run the sh script from the admin console as fmserver it fails straight away, if I run it as the local user with its password it appears to run but in fact times out with a fail message, both of which are about invalid account name or password
The script is working fine when run through terminal, doe not require password, just not when triggered from console.
Does anyone have any light to shine on this???
Actually, I guess this could apply to macOS Mojave as well, but is there any way to get the Send Email script to work when creating a Runtime solution in macOS Catalina?
I'm using FileMaker Pro Advanced 18 to create my runtime solution. I created a button on my main menu to send an email. When I click the button in High Sierra (and all previous macOS versions) it works. But in macOS Mojave and Catalina, nothing happens.
I know that Apple placed security limits on applications, but there's no way to add my runtime to the list of allowable applications to execute a script. What is supposed to happen is that macOS is supposed to have a pop up that allows you to click to allow this application to run scripts and access mail.app. So this works in FileMaker Pro Advanced 18. However, when I covert my solution to a Runtime, it's no longer "FileMaker Pro Advanced" and instead is considered a Runtime app.
In macOS Catalina, manually adding my runtime solution to this area didn't work: System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy (tab) > Accessibility > (Allow these apps below to control your computer)
Is there any way to allow a runtime to have a simple button to click Send Email in Catalina?
