Any way to put an old script in a new group?

Recommended Posts

In FM9 Advanced, is there any way to move a previously-created script into a group? Or move a script out of a group once it's there?

I am not sure if its different on a Mac, but for windows, you would drag the script under the folder ( via the up and down arrow icon) and while still dragging it, drag it to the right.

To move it out of the folder, you could just drag it out of the folder.

P.S. You should be able to grab multiple scripts at once just like one would do when objects are selected using ctrl/shift etc.

Mr Vodka, it works exactly the same on a mac as well. It's always a little difficult to get the hang of it but you'll know when it's inside a folder when the line with the dot on it indents a little further. If you want to pull it out of your folder, just use the drag method Vodka suggested.

Drag and drop isn't working on my MacBook running OS 10.4.10. I can copy and paste, but then the pasted script has a number appended (i.e., "Print Script 2").

(I can drag and drop other things like web browser bookmarks perfectly well, so it's not my technique that's flawed.)

Anybody else have the same issue?

Just to clarify: I can drag the script, and it looks like it's about to go into the group (it indents, etc.), but as soon as I release the mouse, the script pops back into the original location. Ditto for something that's already in a group.

It would have been better if Filemaker had allowed us to define the group in the script's menu with a pulldown list of groups.
