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...
