I'm running FMPA 16.02.205 and ScriptMaster 5.05 in MacOS 10.12.6.
ScriptMaster doesn't retain the activation state from one start of the app to another. It's not totally consistent either.
Any ideas why the activation of the plug-in isn't being retained between app restarts?
I've had to wipe my laptop and re-install MacOS. I saved all the files, but Apple support said there was no point in saving the apps because they wouldn't work - I'd have to re-install them too.
There's no download of FMP15 on the Filemaker website - does anyone know where it's hidden? Unfortunately, FM support doesn't work over the weekend.
I have splashed the cash and tried to upgrade to FM16 using my old FM15 serial number, but it's not having it.
Not very impressed with Filemaker "support" at the moment.. you guys are much better!
I have been using the the scriptmaster plugin for sometime on a previous Mac, specifically for the Rotate Image function. The instalation on the previous Mac would have been FMP12 advanced, Scriptmaster plugin from about Sept 2015, and Mac OS 10.11.xx My solution used the function pasted into the startup script and although it wasn't fast, worked fine.
I have now made a new installation of the Scriptmater Plugin, v5.05 on a new Mac running OS 10.12.5, FMP advanced 13, and there are a couple of strange things that appear to be assocaited with Java:
1. When I launch FMP it does not come to the foreground. Instead the foreground application is Java...
2. When FMP is active, I see a Java application active in the dock. This wasnt the case in my prevous installation of Scriptmaster where (if it was active), Java was not a foreground/visible process
3. When I quit FMP, irrespective of whether the database that I was working on did or did not use a scriptmaster module or function, Java crashes and I get usual dialogue box "Java quit unexpectedly". I have put a copy of the crash report here.
Any ideas as to what is going wrong?
Thanks in advance
I've broken a pdf saving script which used to work. The filename itself hasn't changed so I don't think that's the problem (there are no /s for instance) - I'm pretty sure it's the file path and Mac OS re-organising itself to sync with iCloud.
I'm trying to save PDFs to Dropbox and I think that the Dropbox folder on my my has changed location. According to info, the location is /Users/mikekentdavies/Dropbox/KJA Music Library.
The calculation I'm using to set the location variable is below; can anyone see where I'm going wrong? (I've also tried various combinations of filemac: / file: / .. / : etc having read the FM creating file paths webpage.)
"filemac:../Users/mikekentdavies/Dropbox/KJA Music Library/Set Lists/" & Gig::Gig Name & " - " & Gig::Version & " Set List.pdf"
I read that the new 3.01 version does not require Java.
When I run FMPAv16 on my Mac (10.11.6) and use the sample Email database it works just fine and I see nothing related to Java. I had the older v2.12 plugin installed on here and have just updated to v3.01 today.
When I run FMPAv16 on a different Mac (10.11.6) and install the v3.01 plugin (never had the plugin installed on this machine before today) and run the sample database a Java App runs without any windows, Just visible in the lower right dock and its single menu is titled "Java"
Any ideas as to this oddity?
