— a developer of cross platform FileMaker Pro plug-ins, databases and utilities — has announced the availability of its Troi File Plug-in 2.2 for FileMaker Pro 5.5.
The Troi File Plug-in is a tool for getting access to information outside the FileMaker Pro database. Any files stored on the computer can be accessed through the functions of the plug-in.
“Porting the 42 functions to Mac OS X was quite a bit of work, but we are happy for our customers that this power plug-in is now also available for Mac OS X,” Peter Baanen, company president said. “All from within FileMaker 5.5 you can take Mac OS X files and folders for a spin.”
All selection dialogs now use Navigation Services when available on the computer. Example files (especially the Multi Import Image example file) have been improved, as has the “Improved Version” function. The latter now also can show the Flash Dialog and return a version build number.
A fully functional version of Troi File Plug-in 2.2 is available for downloading at
Troi’s Web site. It works with FileMaker Pro 4 and later. The cost is US$42 per user. Product updates from version 2.0 and later are free. Upgrades from older versions are available from $19 per user. Developer licenses and multi-user discounts are also available.
