This is about a script that qualifies people for a certain position.   I have a lay-out with people, a position ID and a qualification between 0 and 9(highest). E.g. a person is qualified for a developer position (0003) as 8. The long script has an issue, so I copied it and stripped out everything that has got nothing to do with the issue.  … (Show more)

I have a database that displays PDFs from container fields in a Global container field.  When the Firewall is turned on my local/internal Mac Mini development server,  the Global field does not display the PDF.  If I turn off the Firewall the script works correctly and the PDF is displayed.   The script is simple. Set Field[ GlobalContainer ;… (Show more)

Not to sound paranoid, but what's the point of this Apple dictate? Is it so that in some future version (once we've got used to putting up with it) we're forced to upgrade immediately with every version or we won't be able to log in?   I don't see the point of us not having the choice; am I missing something?

When I work with radio-buttons, I always have a little bit unsatisfied feelings.Though it's easy to use, there's a situation that I cannot find out which item is selected clearly at a glance. All items are same color and the dot(circle) indicating selected is small. To solve these issues, I made custom radio-buttons which use… (Show more)

I never had this problem before, but since I started FM this morning, the mouse pointer stays only visible as a text insert pointer. I cannot get the arrow pointer back, so everywhere I click no matter where, a text field is placed on the layout. I went into other modes, running the project, restarting FM, but nothing helps. Is this a bug?

We're receiving many reports from our customers on our RemoteApp servers that their FileMaker solutions have slowed down to a point of being unusable.   This has been acknowledged by Microsoft and they are actively engaging in community forums. Unfortunately, uninstalling this update hasn't necessarily resolved the problem.   We've just emailed… (Show more)
