Troi Graphic Plug-in (discontinued)

Please note: no new versions planned

Troi Graphic Plug-in has been retired. You can still use it, but we have decided that we will no longer update the plug-in and that we will phase out support for it as well. Version 1.1 is compatible with FileMaker 6 and earlier. The web page below is no longer updated.

(Page updated: March 5th, 2015)

Troi Graphic Plug-in 1.1

Troi Graphic Plug-in is a FileMaker Pro plug-in, which adds Graphics functions to FileMaker Pro 4.0 or higher. With it you can create container fields in any RGB (red, green,blue combination) color you want, do a screen shot capture and make small thumbnail images of (large) images in the database, all within FileMaker!

FileMaker 6 compatible and runs on Mac OS X

Troi Graphic Plug-in 1.1 has been tested with FileMaker Pro 6 and 5.5 and is made compatible for Mac OS X. The Mac OS version of the plug-in is now a so called 'Super Fat' plug-in that will run on Mac OS 8, 9 and Mac OS X. Download the full package or the update to Graphic Plug-in 1.1 for Mac OS and Mac OS X here.

Powerful graphic functions

Troi Graphic Plug-in adds these great functions:

Screen Capture

Screen capturing is great for customer support. Capture the state of the screen into a container. You can capture the complete screen or specify which part of the screen you want. Below a square of 180x180 pixel is shown.

Make Thumbnails: Ideal for Speed in Web Publishing

If you have large images already in FileMaker there was no way to easily make small preview images. But with the Graphic plug-in you can create small thumbnails before you put your database on the web:
