Manipulate any information on your disk from FileMaker Pro.

Gives you access to any files or folders outside the database and lets you manage your images.

No less than 80 functions and 38 script steps let you deal efficiently with any files or folders outside the database. You can select, create, delete, copy, move, rename, modify, zip and unzip files and folders, or check their integrity with a hash. Query detailed information of files and folders: the size on disk, creation and modification dates and more. Get title, subject, keywords, number of pages, author and more info from PDF files. You can mount and unmount remote disks on a server, list the contents of a folder including the contents of all its subfolders or search your disk for files or folders. Create deeply nested folders with ease: specify a path and the plug-in will create the folder, including all parent folders in the path that do not exist. Drag and drop files and folders on a FileMaker window or a drop zone. The paths of the dropped items will be handled by a triggered script, for example to put them in a container field.

We also added several functions that help you manage your images and movies: you can make thumbnails in all sizes, get metadata (IPTC, Exif, GPS, XMP) from images and write IPTC and Exif metadata into your image files. The plug-in comes with an extensive example file which combines some of the plug-in's functions to create a powerful Media Manager for images and movies.

What's New

The TrFile_ExportToFile function can save container data to disk, including on FileMaker Server. Use the new TrFile_IsFree function to check if a file is in use by a different application (or locked). The new Set MetaData of Movie script step (only on macOS) can add (or replace) metadata (like title, GPS and creation data) in movie files. We also improved the Create Thumbnail script step on macOS: you can now create a thumbnail of the first frame of movie files like mov, mp4 etc. We also tested and improved the compatibility of this version with the upcoming macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
