Software tips, techniques, and news.
The ability to markup images has become a standard feature across different programs and operating systems. With our new FileMaker add-on, FM Draw, you'll be able to write on images in just a few simple steps. Whether you're looking to make notations to a design or highlight sections of an image, we have you covered.
To make the FM Draw add-on available to your file, you’ll need to do the following:
If you are using FM Draw on FileMaker Go, make sure your layout's dimensions aren't larger than your device's dimensions. If this happens, you may accidentally drag the window around instead of drawing on the canvas.
Once you’ve installed the add-on, you can configure your FM Draw window in the settings panel by clicking the gear icon.
Once everything is setup, you can start drawing! You have several tools to choose from: pencil (freehand drawing), rectangle, circle, arrow, and drag. The first four will create elements on your canvas, while drag will allow you to move or modify elements. If you would like to remove an element, you can select it with the drag tool and move it off the canvas. You can also change the color of your elements using the color selector on the left side. If you would like to reset your image, you can click the "refresh" button to start over.
In just a few minutes, you can integrate your FileMaker solution with FM Draw! You can markup images inside of your database or start from scratch. Save time by drawing directly in FileMaker with no 3rd party program required. Please contact us if you need further assistance or to discuss getting FM Draw into your FileMaker solution.
