About 2empowerFM Plug-ins

Expand FileMaker's abilities, create a better user experience, and save development time with the 2empowerFM Family of Plug-ins. Originally developed to serve the business needs of a real-world company, these plug-ins are now available to the rest of the FileMaker community. Packed with features, they offer many ways to empower your FileMaker solutions:

- Search to find text within scripts or database fields
- Create dialogs with unlimited controls: buttons, stylized text, menus, and more
- Pop-up multi-level menus anywhere
- Print "hands free" with scriptable printer selection and control of all options
- Run SQL statements on FileMaker data
- Read and write clipboard data including stylized text, FileMaker scripts, and layout objects
- Make anything clickable by checking where the mouse was last clicked
- Perform regular-expression search and replace in strings with advanced Perl-compatible syntax
- Generate a hash of data using many algorithms: SHA512, MD5, TR1, etc.
- Draw on your layout to create conditional buttons, hints in empty fields, tabs spanning databases, and more
...and much more.

What's New

- Updated Developer Assistant to work in Windows FileMaker 11.
- Developer Assistant can now find additional special characters, making it quick and easy to find broken scripts containing '' or ''.
- Fixed an incompatibility with FileMaker 11 that caused Macintosh plug-ins to fail to work with the 2empowerFM manual.
- Fixed compatibility issues between FileMaker 11 and Macintosh Dialogs Unlimited, Layout Painter, Menu Popper, window variables, and Keyboard and Mouse.
