Title

Things that don't work in FileMaker Web Direct

Post

Hi,

Can someone clarify if the below is correct, or if there are workarounds. I've been using FileMaker Web Direct for about two weeks, going back and forth between Web Direct and FileMaker Pro to ensure all the functionality that I designed and layouts I created are working properly and look ok.

I have since discovered the following:

         
  • Print record function does not work in Web Direct
  •      
  • Save Record as PDF function does not work in Web Direct
  •      
  • Export Container function does not SEEM to work (although I may be doing something wrong)

All the above work in FileMaker Pro, but as soon as you try it in Web Direct, it doesn't work.

Is the above correct, are these functions just not supported in Web Direct, or am I doing something wrong. These three functions are going to greatly impact our company and what we wanted FileMaker to do and it's incredibly frustrating and annoying that FileMaker can't build it in. It seems a bit pointless really.

Thanks in advance,

Katrina Rolfe
