hm ... something went wrong with the last release .... it seems like runtimes with FM 15.0.2 may have a problem starting, so I have created the fmWorkMate runtime again using FileMaker 14.
Please let me know (at the conference) or using the contact tab on this website, if you have further problems.
Happy & Smiling

Prettier, smarter, more useful than ever before!
After two years since the last official release, the new fmWorkMate doesn't just have a pretty face, but is packed with powerful, unique and indispensable tools to make your daily File-Making more joyful, make you more productive and make your product more polished.
The new fmCheckMate Layout Analysis function is the king of analysis tools for instant layout analysis!
Find broken field references, commented out calculations, duplicate object names, floating objects, anchoring errors, editable value lists, and much, much more!
Find more errors in layouts than you can possibly imagine - almost instantly with a copy and a paste!
What's the difference?
The revamped fmTextDiff tool compares your code more easily and intuitively than ever.
- Compare text or FileMaker objects directly from the clipboard
- Drop files to compare their contents automatically.
- Diff fmxmlsnippets, or analysis results directly from fmCheckMate.
...and a pile more stuff!
The Mac version is online now; I hope to get the windows version ready for my presentations at the Developer Conference in Salzburg.
Happy Making FileMaker Work!

Thanks to Christian Schmitz of MBS plugins (and my great ideas) the FileMaker Workspace is getting a seach function and a go to line function!
Just install the MBS plugin (at least version 5.4.0.02) and you'll see two new input fields and a button:

There is ONLY ONE WAY to make FileMaker themes to be updateable across multiple files!
Just follow these SIX golden rules, and you will not get painfully stung!
1. DEFINE THEMES AND STYLES IN *ONE FILE* ONLY
2. SYNCHRONIZE THEM TO OTHER FILES ONLY BY IMPORTING AND REPLACING THE THEME:
LAYOUT MODE > LAYOUTS > CHANGE THEME... > [IMPORT THEME...] > [REPLACE]
FILE > MANAGE > THEMES... > [IMPORT...] > [REPLACE]
3. NEVER COPY AND PASTE THEMES
4. NEVER DEFINE THEMES AND STYLES BY HAND ANYWHERE ELSE IN YOUR SOLUTION
5. NEVER RENAME A THEME
6. BEWARE OF THEME AND STYLE IMPOSTORS AT ALL TIMES!

Until now FileMaker plugin installation has been SUCH A DRAG :-( ...
...discovering what version you already have
...all those hidden extensions folders
But now, with fmPluginMate...
...FileMaker plugin installation is JUST A DRAG :-)
Plugin installation has never been easier!
...and to discover what Plugins you already have installed, you have to do no more than LOOK + SEE
...and to get to those pesky Extension folders, you have to no more than CLICK.
fmPluginMate is just ONE of the FREE tools in the fmWorkMate toolbox, but because it is just soooo handy, it's also available as an extra download on the downloads page.
