Hurray, FileMaker 14 is here!

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015


Yesterday FileMaker announced the release of FileMaker 14. We, at myFMbutler, are really excited with this new release.

The new version of WebDirect is a real game changer. Not only does it bring FileMaker to other mobile platforms, such as the Android platform, but with the speed improvements it brings the experience of the desktop to the browser. The new Script Workspace and calculation window are one of the most striking changes in the FileMaker Pro client. However, the client has tons of small improvements and changes, which we will discover and enjoy the next few weeks.

With the release of the FileMaker 14 platform, myFMbutler is releasing several product updates and more is to come in the near future.

AutoSender 4


AutoSender 4 is a tool that runs on FileMaker Server, and allows you to automatically send mail messages from your FileMaker solutions. It supports both HTML and Text mail.

AutoSender also supports automatic sending of faxes or text messages through the use of a third party fax or texting service.

This new release is optimised for FileMaker Server 14, both remains compatible with older FileMaker versions. AutoSender 4 is available on our web site today.

Clip Manager 5 for Mac

We are pleased to announce that Clip Manager 5 is available today.

Clip Manager is an application that allows you to store FileMaker fields, tables, scripts, script steps, custom functions and layouts in an easy-to-use library.

You can copy and store objects that have been copied to FileMaker’s own clipboard, and then reuse them later.

You can also easily make batch changes to the clippings in Clip Manager or in your preferred text editor, and then send the updated field, script or layout back to FileMaker’s clipboard.

This new version brings full support for FileMaker Pro 14. It includes support for themes, retina displays, Yosemite and much more ...

Clip Manager 5 is available on our web site today.

DoScript 4

DoScript is a free FileMaker Pro plug-in for Windows and Mac that allows you to easily trigger scripts from within the FileMaker calculation engine. This new version brings 64-bit support and is compatible with FileMaker Pro 14.

64-bit: Help, the plug-ins don't load!

FileMaker Pro 14 is now a 64-bit application. This means that the plug-ins you use need to be 64-bit as wel. Most of our plug-ins are already 64-bit, but some are not ready yet and it takes more time to do the transition.

Does it mean you can't upgrade to FileMaker Pro 14 because one of your plug-ins is not 64-bit ready?
No, FileMaker has planned for this, and you can run or install your FileMaker Pro client in 32-bit mode too.

Check out our list of compatible plug-ins:

Plug-in 64-bit mode 32-bit mode
DoScript 4
DoSQL 2
Clip Manager Helper Plug-in
PrinterSwitch 2*
eID**
Clip Manager Bridge plug-in (Clip Manager 4)

* We expect an update of PrinterSwitch this summer.
** eID will be updated when there is better 64-bit support of the eID Middleware.

myFMbutler products and FileMaker 10 compatibility

Friday, January 9th, 2009

We wanted to give everyone an update on the compatibility status of our products with FileMaker 10:

Initial testing of our plug-ins (DoSQL, DoScript, PrinterSwitch), have not shown any compatibility issues with the FileMaker 10 platform.

AutoSender 2.5 also seems to work fine with FileMaker Server 10, although we'll be providing a small update that will integrate a new JDBC driver by February.

Clip Manager 3 does have some issues for people trying to 'Get' or 'Set' a custom function with FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced. We will be releasing version 3.1 later this month. This version will also provide a number of other fixes.

We also recently found issues (unrelated to FM10) when using the 'Copy to Clip Manager' function on Brian Dunning's CF web site. Starting with a certain build of Flash 9 and all builds of Flash 10, the copying no longer works. We are currently working on a fix and hope to provide it by next week (actually, we already fixed it today).
