Nickenich, Germany - MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 3.1 for Mac OS X or Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 3.1 has been updated and now includes 1486 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more than 100 new functions:
Plenty of new DynaPDF functions allow you to create PDFs from Filemaker with pictures and text. You can include formatting commands in your texts. And images can be embedded in original format or in a scaled down and JPEG compressed format for smaller PDF files. With transparent images and texts you can easily place watermarks on the PDF pages. And if you use our OCR functions in the MBS Plugin, you can have the recognized text added to the PDF on top of the image. This way text is search and selectable.
With our new Twain functions you can talk to various scanners and scan images. Of course you can also enumerate devices and select one. For scanning you can set a few parameters like the resolution and scan with or without user interface. With a script call you receive the image and process it.
For Mac OS X we have new functions to create and resolve bookmarks. A bookmark is similar to an alias file in Finder, but without a file, so you can store it as text in a database field. Using bookmarks you can store find files or folders even after they have been renamed or moved.
For the serial ports, we have now functions to set data bits and baud rate. For PDFKit we have new function to add PDF pages from existing PDF to a new PDF. For database management we have plugin functions to lookup table names and base table names. Also you can query fields for a table name or a base table name.
Also we improved the Audit functions, added a new Webviewer function to find options for select fields in forms, new SMNP functions and much more.
