Backup Printouts of All Scripts
Hi. Is there any way to print out all my scripts one after another? I am able to print them out one at a time, on one sheet of paper at a time, but some are so short it seems a waste.
If you were to acquire FileMaker Advanced, you could use the Database Design Report to list all your scripts.
Why do you need to print out all your scripts? I can't quite see the value to doing that.
Thanks so much for your quick reply. II would like to have a hard copy backup of my scripts in case I should ever have to rebuild from scratch. Just had a scary glitch here!
A better source of protection is to make numerous sequential backups of your file. This protects a great deal more than just your scripts and can be automated so that you can turn it on during development and get a back up copy of the file as frequently as every 15 minutes. This not only protects you against possible file corruption--a rare occurrence but also against "devloper remorse"--which can be quite common. ("Developer Remorse" is what I call it when I make a major design change to a database undergoing development and then decide the change was not a good idea and have to revert back to what I had before I made the change.)
