May 20, 2015  Replace Text in Scripts with New Developer Assistant Advanced
2empowerFM Developer Assistant v3.0 for OS X is out with tons of new features like search in text boxes, FileMaker 14 support, and search in script step XML.

Developer Assistant Advanced is an optional upgrade that adds the ability to find all matches in any type of search, replace text in scripts or multi-line text boxes, and replace chosen matches in find all results.

Replacements let you quickly refactor your database by renaming $variables, SQL references, text-based parameters, product names, and anything else FileMaker can't rename for you. You can also paste script steps or calculations from another DB, then rename all the broken references so they work in the current DB. Replacements are powerful and will save the advanced developer a lot of time.   Learn more...

Jul 5, 2013  Licenses Now Last Longer, HFP & MP 3.1, OS X Mavericks
All plug-ins in this release allow licenses purchased over a year before the plug-in release date to be used if the release contains only minor new features or small fixes. Since OS X changed to a yearly release schedule, we found that too many people had to purchase a license upgrade almost yearly just to fix small things with each new OS X, so this should take care of that.

You'll also find a new, free, epFMNameID function that lets you pass a string containing the name of a script, field, table, layout, or value list in such a way that it can be safely renamed later.

Hands-Free Printer 3.1 now works correctly with faxes on mac and with the pre-release of OS X Mavericks. All other plug-ins were already compatible with Mavericks.

Menu Popper 3.1 and Dialog Master 2.43 now support indenting menu items and making them unclickable without turning them grey.   Learn more...

Apr 12, 2013  Add Dropdown Menus with Menu Popper 3.0
Menu Popper 3.0 lets you add dropdown menus to fields on FileMaker layouts. As the user types, Menu Popper dropdowns can show search results from multiple fields, with separator lines between different types of matches. You control the order and style of search results, and you're free to add helpful options like 'New Record'.

Pop-up menus now support adding bullets and all menus support bold, italic and underline styles. Menus can now be combined and their items can be added or deleted or even shown conditionally based on what keys are held down.   Learn more...
