Optimized for FileMaker 15

Troi Plug-ins for FileMaker Pro 15new June 21st, 2016 Today we released Troi Text Plug-in 4.0.1 for FileMaker Pro 15, 14, 13 and 12. In this version we further optimized the plug-in for FileMaker 15. We added description and type-ahead information for all functions of the plug-in. This extra function description will be shown in FileMaker Pro 15 in the Specify Calculation dialog box when you type a function name and also as a text popup in the functions pane on the right.
The type-ahead information is used by the auto complete functionality of FileMaker Pro 15. In the calculation pane of the Specify Calculation dialog box you can type a letter or two of the function name and instantly see a list of matching function names. You can also type a function name in the functions pane on the right.

On the version history page you can find the complete list of changes of this and previous versions.

Completely customizable spell checking for FileMaker 15

In version 4.0 we added a completely customizable spell checker. The advantage of this function is that this can be configured completely from the database with calculations. You can specify a custom spelling (language) per database or even per text field, all driven from a script or a calculation. You can also specify to ignore words you or your company might use.

Great features!

With the plug-in installed you can do all this from within FileMaker:

    • and other combinations
  • Get (unique) lines and sort words and lines
  • Make a text sum from a related file that updates without a script.

SumText now native in FileMaker Pro

FileMaker Pro has a List(...) function, which is similar to the SumText functionality of Troi Text Plug-in. As this function is native to FileMaker it is best to use that.
We have left the SumText function in for backward compatibility.

For more detailed information, including a list of features, go to the Text Plug-in Details Page. We also added a comments page with remarks from other users.

You can use the plug-in with with FileMaker Pro 15, 14, 13 and 12.

Easy installing and updating

With FileMaker Pro 12 and later plug-ins can be installed directly from a container field! This means you no longer need the AutoUpdate feature of FileMaker Server. In our download we have included an example file EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12 which installs (and autoupdates!) our plug-ins with FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Server.
This example supports the 64-bit version of FileMaker Pro 14 and 15. On Windows there are 2 plug-ins: Troi_Text.fmx (for 32-bit) and Troi_Text.fmx64 (for 64-bit).
NOTE FileMaker Pro 15 and 14 and FileMaker Server 15 and 14 as well as Filemaker Server 13 and FileMaker WebDirect are 64-bit processes and require the Troi_Text.fmx64 version to be installed. On OS X the 32-bit and 64-bit version is a single universal plug-in.

Run as a server-side plug-in

Troi Text Plug-in is compatible to run under FileMaker Server: it can run as a server-side plug-in or as a plug-in used by WebDirect or the web publishing engine when using FileMaker Server. This means that you can use the powerful text functions in server-side scripts, opening up lots of new possibilities.
