ProMaker Utils 1.1
Works best with Mac 0S 8.5!
What ProMaker Utils can do for you
If you are a FileMaker Pro 3.0 or 4.0 user or developer and write ScriptMaker scripts, this small application can save you a lot of time. ProMaker Utils makes it possible to paste an entire ScriptMaker script (all steps) from a TEXT file into a FileMaker script.
No more clicking until your hands hurt, just enter them in one go!
IMPORTANT ProMaker has been retired!
Promaker only works with FileMaker 3 and 4. We have no plans to update ProMaker to make it suitable for FileMaker 5. We no longer sell licenses for Promaker. ProMaker is now freeware. Below you find instructions to register it.
Below is the key for registering ProMaker Utils.
name: Free License
This will enable you to personalize your software, get rid of the lengthy startup screen and set preferences.
How does ProMaker Utils work?
ProMaker Utils will bring FileMaker to the front and start pasting the steps into the selected script. It is that simple.
ProMaker Utils doesn't use a patch or an extension so no potential conflicts there.
New in version: 1.1 (15-10-98) :
This version has been tested and is compatible with Mac OS 8.5:
System Requirements: A Macintosh with 68030 or better or Power Macintosh, System 7.1 or later. Of course you need a copy of FileMaker Pro, this should be version 3.0v4 or later (any international version).
IMPORTANT: At the moment no support for older FileMaker versions is given. You should update FileMaker to the v4 version before using ProMaker Utils (updating is a good idea anyway, as it fixes some nasty bugs). These updaters can be found at: <http://www.filemaker.com/>.
ProMaker Utils is shareware
This means that you are free to test the program before you pay. You may also make copies of the original and complete package (including the Readme file) and distribute it to friends etc. However, you may not distribute a modified or registered version. ProMaker Utils costs $25 per user, site licensing is possible. See the enclosed Register Program.
One of the (Swiss) users of ProMaker, Andy Haeberli, made an animated GIF to demonstrate how ProMaker works: He wrote:
Listen, I made a little "movie" about ProMaker Util. I think it is very helpful to show how it works. (I hate to read manuals!) Just open it with Netscape 3.0 and see what happens.
NB: it should also work on other Browsers like Netscape 2.0 and Internet Explorer. Click here to view the animated GIF
Please Note: ProMaker Utils is ONLY available for Macintosh.

At the moment ProMaker Utils can not get a script out of FileMaker. This can be done by the excellent Text Capture FKEY from James W. Walker. To install this easily I've created Several Font Suitcases for this FKEY. You only have to drag the wanted FKEY number into your Fonts folder. System 7 will happily keep the suitcase open and the FKEYs in the file will be available for use as if they were installed in the System file.
Note: Text Capture FKEY is not a product of Troi
