Do we direct all beta test info/issues to Apple or is there a place to send this kind of stuff to FMI as well?
Has somebody tested the tabs feature of Sierra with FileMaker? Does it work? With which versions does it work?
Im preparing to start testing tomorrow. I will let you know.
I sent same question to robert_holsey last night.
Would be great if FMI ETS NDA would cover Apple Inc. NDA as well, but I wouldn't assume though.
I'm not even sure if I'm entitled to send 10.12 related reports to FMI TS
Which tabs? Are you referring to new Safari functions or to FM "RE-GI-STER-STEU-ER-E-LE-MENT"?
I am sure FMI are testing already but they always seem to have some small issues even with existing OS versions.
The agreement with Apple would allow some disclosure as 10.12 and iOS 10 are publicly announced along with many of the features.
I am not sure what happened with me and ETS. I was invited to ETS for 14 and identified and reported a few legitimate issues. Some were not fixed until 15. I guess I just did not find enough issues to get invited back again. No worries, more time for actual work.
I suppose you can post any information in the Apple developer beta forum and anyone with the link and a developer account could see it. I am sure someone at FMI has a developer account.
The tab feature is one I am really excited about. I want to see if a new window opens in a tab or a window. This will be great for window management in FM.
It´s in fact the only feature I find interesting in Sierra.
Tabs work with FM15 and Sierra
Thanks a lot.
Have you got the possibility to test with 14, 13 etc. too ?
I'm not sure if quantity matters. I'm sure you did valuable contributions.
Anyway, the more testers, the better.
I suppose you can post any information in the Apple developer beta forum
Me no like. Very complicated to report issues to Apple Inc. and you'll never get any response.
When a Mac Issue bothers me, then it's because it's affecting FM-Functions. FMI TS is communicating very well and FMI also carry this Mac related reports to Cupertino once in a while.
Letting FMI know first about upcoming issues caused by Apple is probably more important for us.
I still have no clue. How do you prompt "Tabs" in FMP?
Works in FM 13 also ! Siri works in German :-)
If you find new functions for C/C++/Objective-C developers in macOS 10.12 you'd like to see in FileMaker, we could check if I could provide them via plugin functions.
Don´t forget to activate in Settings/DOCK
I've thrown away 2 hours of my life looking at the wwdc, all consumer eye candy and no HW announcements.
There haven't been hardware announcements at WWDC for a number of years now. I will agree there was a lot of eye candy announced, but there are a lot of great new things happening too - the new filesystem and opening up Siri to developers being two huge ones.
"Hey, Siri? Make me a FileMaker database."
My comment this morning: I think Cupertino is getting short on Prozac.
„I’m so excited“, „it’s amazing“, „we made it even better“.
I thought this is the Shopping Channel.
Anyway, MacRumors put it all together in a 7 minutes video
Everything Apple Announced at WWDC 2016 in 7 Minutes - YouTube
Btw, I like iOS 10
Right now I'm watching Portugal vs Island, Euro 2016.
All players have incredible shoes, really standing out.
But what counts is the play. The result, the outcome, the performance.
And the RDF... it's the modern incarnation of Excalibur... many try to use it but only Steve managed to.
Thanks to remind me that there's a life without FileMaker, at least temporarily
As I used to say in my earlier life as a Sound Engineer: Engineers apart from Mixing Desk gonna die soon!

iOS 10 will make 40 percent of all iPads obsolete | ZDNet
Turned out fine that my iPad mini (first generation) won't run iOS 10.
To whom it may concern:
Reflector 2 by
won't work with iOS 10 currently.
Reflector allows screen mirroring of your iOS-Devices on your Mac and seem to be standard at Devcon.
Airsquirrels already knows and will probably fix soon.
Meanwhile we go back to the time where FMI used to use a video cam to show FM Go on a big screen
To display iOS device on a Mac, you could use the method of plugging in using Lightning cable and opening up QuickTime Player and choosing to create a new movie recording using iOS device as 'camera'... You can use this to mirror the device screen without actually recording anything... Haven't tested in Sierra yet though as my ageing iMac here is 'early 2009' model so has hit the end of the road at El Capitan...
Thanks. The first thing I tested when Reflector failed but have chosen wrong setup first. It's
and not New Screen-Recording
Click on the 'v' Icon next to Record-Button to choose your iOS-Device
But I miss the iPhone / iPad Frames with Reflector
… and Reflector works wireless
Just my 2 cents:
I know that it is currently handeled differently - BUT: It is really very important to get knowledge about the next version, to discuss the next systems like iOS10 an sierra - NOW!
With that yearly cycle of new OS, new FM version, we have no chance to get ready with a functional - as far as possible bugfree - software...
Calling them "obsolete" is incorrect. These iPads will continue to function as they do now once iOS 10 is released. Apple's doing a helova lot better than Android on supporting older devices.
Yeah, I just last week pulled out an iPad 1 and use it to screen share and monitor various apps in my server cabinet. Works great! Cheap and easy to use spare monitor display, with built-in wifi and a pretty zippy computer in a nifty and compact package!
Our iPad 1 is the Movie player for the car now.
I filled it with movies for our kids and they enjoy it.
And the 15 Euro iPad holder is well worth the money!
Any word back from FMI on this?
May I ask you for recommendations and guidelines on how to report issues to FMI that go under Apple Inc. NDA for Mac OS10.12 beta?

I am not an expert in this department but from asking around (including those who were tagged) I'd shy away from posting about anything on a public forum about the Developer Preview - and that includes reporting publicly about bugs. At the very least I'd comb over the EULA for it to see what it says about posting things publicly about it.
With that said, I'd probably hold off posting any bugs that concern macOS Sierra and FileMaker Pro products until at least the Public Beta of macOS Sierra is available - that is assuming the EULA for macOS Sierra allows for that also. In other words, I'd recommend holding off until at least next month (July) when Apple mentioned the public beta(s) would be available and then check to make sure the EULA allows for reporting bugs in this manner.
And someone on this thread mentioned reporting on bugs with "older" versions of FileMaker products. I'd suggest you double check the System Requirements on those products before doing that. Unless the bug is "hideous", it is unlikely we would fix bugs in "unsupported" versions of FileMaker products as they pertain to macOS Sierra. As it stands right now, there are no FileMaker products that are certified to work with unreleased Apple OSes. Historically. we have supported the shipping version and one version back but nothing has been announced at this time. As the release dates for the upcoming OSes gets closer we will provide information on what products are and are not compatible / certified.
Thanks Steve. I think everyone just wants to try to help how they can but I suppose that is not possible right now.
I setup Apple Developer topics and anyone with proper credentials for Apple development and beta can login and participate.

Cool! Thank You very much!
the first who replied wants back bento...
Can anyone let me know how I can get FM to open up a new window in tabs?
If I go 'window > new window' it just opens a new window.
I've set the dock to 'always' for tabs
I believe that in subsequent betas (and almost certainly the final version), support for tabs in FileMaker was removed.
