Rich Text Editor Add-on

Recommended Posts

Claris have released a new Rich Text Editor Add-on with the latest FileMaker Pro update.

I've had a look at it and it looks good, and works in FileMaker and WebDirect. The only issue I've had is that the toolbar sometimes disappears for seemingly no reason in FileMaker Pro (seems more stable in WebDirect).

Also it's based on quite an old version of Quill, and although I'm not so familiar with the new add-ons there seems to be a fair bit of dev stuff in there. What's the AddonSampleData table used for?

Has anyone else tried it?

Nice article, thanks. That answers some of the questions I have.

I'm assuming it will work better in FileMaker Pro when Claris switches from IE web viewer to Chromium (hopefully soon).

However I'm still wondering why a six year-old version of Quill was used for the add-on?


The main problem I can see with this is printing reports with rich text fields on them. I can use a Web Viewer which works okay but it doesn't auto resize, which is awkward to say the least. Any ideas?
