But that doesn't help... It says in that documentation that you can set a variable, but in the manage script dialog, there is no option for "Set Variable." Neither does that option exist in the define calculation window...
So if its not in those two places as an option, how do I set it up? I hope I'm clear... it appears that you need to just type that in your script somewhere, but I can't figure out how to get to that..
I suppose I need to hand code a variable in some totally empty script window and name that script on my own and then call it or attach it to a button... but I'm not sure that's for the faint of heart even if I knew how to do it.
But thanks for responding...
You don't set a variable in the "manage scripts dialog". Create a new script in the manage scripts dialog and, on the left, under the Control Script Steps category, you'll find the Set Variable Script Step. . . second from bottom.
BTW, as far as I know, all documentation for FMP 11 is electronic, so you do have the manual.
