Troi Text Plug-in 3 is a very powerful tool for dealing efficiently with text in your FileMaker Pro database. It adds SumText, Set Creation, Lines and Word functions, XML Parsing and more!

This plug-in will currently not run on FileMaker Pro 14 (64-bit). We have decided to update Troi Text Plug-in for FileMaker 14 due to demand from our customers. This update will take a while yet. To use this plug-in with FileMaker Pro 14 in the meantime please try running FileMaker Pro 14 in 32-bit mode. See the FileMaker 14 compatibility page for more info.

Troi Plug-ins for FileMaker Pro 12NOTE Troi Text Plug-in 3.0 works without problems with FileMaker Pro 12 and 13!

Version 3.0.1 for FileMaker Pro 8.5 available

Troi Text Plug-in 3.0.1 runs natively with universal FileMaker Pro 8.5 and FileMaker Advanced 8.5, but also with FileMaker Pro 7 and FileMaker Pro 8. The Mac OS X version is a Universal plug-in which runs natively on PowerPC and Intel Macs. (it also still runs on Windows).

For those users who are still working with FileMaker 5 through 6, and for users of FileMaker 7 who prefer to continue working with the 'classic' plug-in calls we offer Troi Text Plug-in version 2.1.6.

Note: version 3.0.1 of Troi Text Plug-in is a small update released on October 12th, 2006. It adds support for styles in the GetLine function. Download it here.

SumText now native in FileMaker Pro 8.5

FileMaker Pro 8.5 has a new List(...) function, which is similar to the SumText functionality of Troi Text Plug-in. As this new function is native to FileMaker it is best to use it for all FileMaker Pro 8.5 only deployments. If, however, you deploy your solution on a mixed FileMaker 8.5, 8 and/or 7 platform, the SumText function can still be used.

On the Text Plug-in Details Page you can see the list of all functions and an interesting use of a Dynamic History by A.E Wood & Erickson. We also added a comments page with remarks from other users.

Enhanced functionality

The Text plug-in now has this functionality:

  • Made compatible with FileMaker Pro 8.5.
  • (Mac OS X) Converted to Universal plug-in which runs natively on PowerPC and Intel Macs!
  • Updated the User Guide for version 3.0. We also improved the links in the table of contents, so the links now also work with the Preview application of Mac OS X.

Together with the existing functions the possibilities are virtually limitless. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
