Creating page numbers in preview mode

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I would like to create a page count for a found set of records when I am in preview mode and when I export to PDF  ie if a found set of records has 3 pages then the first page would contain a field that reads '1 of 3'

Can anyone help with how to achieve this?

Any help is much appreciated

A new feature in 19 is Get (PageCount)  even though it is a function it only will work when used as a layout symbol {{PageCount}}  and only evaluates during Printing or saving as PDF

This feature was introduced so that PSOS or server side PDF operations can compute the page count as server doesn't have a Preview mode so no means to compute how many pages.

      I cannot select inside an input field at a specific character. Clicking on the field works and selects the field, but I then need to use the arrow keys to go to a specific characters. Mouse clicking at a specific characters does nothing. Anyone has experienced this?

      I moved fields (and scripts) from one FM file to another one.
      Now, I have a table to 2 fields that has same function but different names, example: Container1 and Container2
      Both have their own attached scripts and calculations.
      I would like to merge "container2" into "Container1" field so the attached scripts and calculations will also change, but I can't rename it simply to "container1"
      is there a way to without going through all the scripts and calculations?

      Hi all,
      I have created a portal in a related table and I want to apply a filter to it so that it only shows the latest versions from a found set of records and to hide the others. There is a related field within the portal called 'scan version' which displays the version number as eg 'v001' 'v002' 'v003' etc
      I've been hunting around online to find a calculation that fits my needs and have played around with the 'Max' function but to no avail
      If anyone can give me some pointers that would be awesome, I'm still very new to this and learning so any help is always appreciated!
      If you need any more info please let me know
      I have just worked this out and used the following calculation
      Scans::Scan Versions = Max ( Scans::Scan Versions )
      and it worked!

      I have tried to pass the below JSON data to the API. But it doesn't accept the JSON data due to Square brackets[] in the JSON Key. Is there any solution available to pass the below value?
      JSONSetElement ( "{}" ; "[Name | Last]" ; "Test" ; JSONString )
      We need the output like below.
      "[Name | Last]": "Test"
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi all,
      I'm a film editor and have started building a FM database to be able to track visual effects shots that go in and out of an editing timeline. 
      I am trying to create a calculation that will enable me to add frames to timecode and get the result back in timecode.
      At the moment I have a text field called 'Scan TC In' which has the following TC entry 18:59:48:23 (HH:MM:SS:FF) and I need to add 8 frames to it, the timeline runs at 24 frames a second. 
      Does anyone know how I can achieve this?
      I'm a newbie to FM so any help is greatly appreciated!
