Saving Layouts to Text File?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone :

I want to know if there's any trick to save the Layout format (text format only without images) of Filemaker to text file.

I know that we can save the layout format to PDF file, not text file. Is there any workaround for this so I can see the same format on the text file?

Thank you.

It's not clear to me what you're asking. A text file would be created using Export Records, but it would only contain data. Can you expand on your question?

Hi Bcooney,

Regarding that, Export to records only save the contents of data, not the contents of layout. So, my best bet for now is saving to PDF file and convert it to text file. I found out that using PDF converter to text file will save the format of the layout. For example:




Hello,

   How are you doing?

Here is the format





On the text file, if we use regular save as text PDF file, it would be 





Hello,

How are you doing?

Here is the format

I found that XPDF converter do this job well (saving layout format of text). I am not sure if there's another better way to do this.

Thank you.
