I just experimented with inserting a .bmp file into a container--both storing as reference and not storing as reference. No such "EDIT BITMAP" option appears when I right-click the field. I can export the field contents and get it to open that way--though I'd have to change my system settings to get paint to open it instead of the image viewer.
What method did you use to insert the picture?
Sorry I guess i should have explained it better, I cannot get it to work on a Mac, however on a Windows platform you can right click in the field or create a button (I did the latter) and select "insert object" instead if insert picture. This brings up a window asking what kind of object.
I then select "Paintbrush picture" from the available options and this opens up MS Paint, when im done with my drawing i simply close Paint and the IMG is saved in the Field, from here all i have to do is right click and select "edit bitmap" as mentioned before.
hope this helps and if you could figure out a way to do this on a mac I would love to hear it.
I had looked at this earlier however its not really what im looking for. I need the user to be able to draw in a field of a record or Edit an image already there.
Thanks for your post though
Does anyone know if these type of features (drawing tools) are even available in filemaker pro 10, if not it would be great to have them implemented in the next version
the above works on a pc just insert a blank bit map and use using "insert object" (see graphic a few posts above)
on a mac use paintbrush (free paint tool) and export field content
to import on a mac use go to field and inset picture
