FmPro Layout Diff extracts and compares field info from FileMaker 7/8/8.5 layouts. This info is presented in a columnar format for viewing, exporting, and comparison. Fields can be compared by either Field ID or Field Name, with the resulting differences displayed in a re-sizable, sortable list. FmPro Layout Diff quickly shows FileMaker 8.5 layout object names for an entire layout, without requiring each and every object to be individually clicked in layout mode within FileMaker. Large layouts are instantly resized and printed on a single printed page for documentation and development purposes.
FmPro Layout Diff Features:
Instantly View FileMaker 8.5 Field Object Names - Within FileMaker 8.5, it is necessary to click on each layout object to determine the name which was assigned in layout mode. FmPro Layout Diff simplifies this process by listing all of the fields and their object names in a scrollable list.
Gathers Layout Info with No DDR Required - Since FmPro Layout Diff reads XML info from Mac OS X clippings files, there is no need to create a DDR with FileMaker Pro 8.5 Advanced. The XML and layout image info is instantly read directly from the clippings file by FmPro Layout Diff.
Compare Layouts by Field ID or Field Name - Layouts can also be compared by Field ID or Field Name, to provide for the comparison of different layouts or different versions of the same layout within a single file.
Export Layout Details as Excel or XML Files - Some layouts may be so large that it becomes useful to export the info into a spreadsheet or other application for further processing or for creating user documentation.
Easily Print Large Layouts on a Single Page - FileMaker layouts don’t always fit neatly onto a single printout. FmPro Layout Diff instantly resizes layout images to fit on a single page for printing or exporting as PDF files.
