Quickly save labels to PDF

NRGship Pro for UPS and NRGship Pro for FedEx both have the ability to create PDF versions of labels that were originally shipped using output to thermal printers. When printing to a thermal printer, we produce output files that are native to the device. In previous releases if you needed a PDF you would have to void the label and re-ship for laser and then save as PDF. We are now able to convert these labels to PDF so they can be created quickly by choosing the PDF option from shipment detail.

FileMaker Cloud and Encryption At Rest

So you’ve got files hosted on the cloud and you now want to move some of that data into another table. When you go to import, you’re going to be faced with a dialog to enter the Encryption At Rest password FOR EVERY IMPORT you perform. Luckily, if you have FileMaker Pro Advanced, you can use the Developer Utilities to remove the password from your files before you run the import. This will save you the headache of entering the password and when you upload the files back to your server the password will be re-added. Check out FileMaker Help for more information on decrypting your files.
