You can send out a record via email if you create a calculation that includes the parts of the record you want, and then use the Send Mail script step to pump it out. Alternatively, you could put the calculation directly in the Send Mail script.

Ok, I was afraid that I couldn't do a wysiwyg email of a record.

Instead, I have been trying to create a PDF with adobe PDFwriter and distiller and the email that. Unfortunately, the fonts come out gibberish. This is only for FMP, other apps work great. Anyone familiar with distiller enough to tell me what the problem might be?

I have Acrobat 5 as well.

Filemaker Knowledge Base article 5336 has this:

"Text is not generated correctly using Adobe Acrobat PDFWriter version 5.0. In some cases the text is illegible where different characters are printed."

They recommend using Distiller for generating pdfs, although my experience has been that it don't work neither. I'm going to see whether another (free) means of pdf generation can be used more successfully.

HTH,

David
