As a Claris partner, we also resell FileMaker licenses. Buying the license from us has some extra benefits, one of them being a nicely formatted PDF document with all information about the license, including download links. In order to be able to generate this document from our FileMaker based CRM, I needed to find a way to include functional web links in it. So I wrote a custom function that does it, without needing any plug-ins or other external technologies.
The custom function simply takes a PDF saved from FileMaker, and adds a link to it. As long as you know what page and where on that page you want the link to be, you can modify your PDF that easily.
No plug-ins are needed, no web viewer, so it works in the whole platform, including WebDirect and server-side scripts.

We have containers that we drag and drop PDFs into, that are externally stored and the field on the layout is formatted as a PDF. I know I've done this in the past where I wrote a little script that sets a temporary path and when it's clicked the enduser can view in Adobe. The script is simple: it sets the a variable to a temporary path, then exports the field contents to automatically open. I cannot get the script to work. It seems so simple... maybe my mind isn't working right today.
So my next idea was to make popover button with the pdf container in, interactive so when the user clicks on the popover you see the PDF within Filemaker, that does not work either. I tried this both on a mac and a pc.
I'm sure I'm missing something.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Trying to display a pdf stored on the iPad AT A SPECIFIC PAGE NUMBER or 'DESTINATION' tag within the pdf document from FMGo. I've tried both a Webviewer and Open URL call but the #page= and #destinationtag appended to the filepath (eg //MyFile.pdf#page=20) is ignored. Any ideas how to open and display a PDF at specific page?
Scribe 4 - FileMaker OCR Scanning Demo Video
Today, we wanted to share a practical way to use the new FileMaker OCR and PDF integration features in Scribe 4. If you have a stack of paper with information you need to access from FileMaker, you can easily automate this process with Scribe.
In this demo video, we will show how you can scan in a stack of paper and extract the text (using OCR) into FileMaker, and have it on individual (spliced) PDF pages.

I have a runtime solution that was created in FMP 12. This no longer works on High Sierra or Mojave.
My iMac just gave up the ghost , but Mojave would not have run on that machine anyway.
So Instead of sinking money into a new Mac, I am looking to see if there is anyone here on the forum that I could hire to render the runtime for Mojave (from the previous fmp12 file), do a simple runthrough to verify that everything works well and then create an installer package/DMG to get me (and my customers) back up and running. Thanks for your time and consideration!on in this matter
