Happy New Year fellow FileMaker developers!

With the new year comes a (slightly) new look to the webste. Although teething troubles are to be expected, it should make getting updates out to you easier (and hopefully more frequent)...

Watch this space...

...there are some good things coming soon.

Next release of fmWorkMate to appear shortly

...including a brand new tool fmPluginMate

it makes managing your FileMaker plugins a drag.


Great greets


New release of fmWorkMate 0.9v21 beta

In this and recent versions:


You can now elegantly access fmWorkMate's new home,, directly from the fmWorkMate start page - just click the slider at the top right!


The Simple Calculator has been considerably improved:


  • you can add your own functions via the preferences page
  • useful _HexRGB and _HexRGBA functions have been added


The XSLT Chooser now keeps track of usage, so you can access your favourites quickly and easily.


...and, of course, fixed various bugs.

It's all on the downloads page.


:-) Happy programming!

Welcome to the fresher, newer, crisper MrWatson!

With the FileMaker Conference 2011 metaphorically and literally just around the corner, I'll soon be tanking fresh new ideas, and taking a fresh new look to the future.

I'm looking forward to sharing these ideas with you, and hope you'll join me here on life's never-ending leaning curve.

Yours, namely
