FmPro Layout Diff extracts, summarizes and compares field
info from FileMaker 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.
Instantly View FileMaker 8.5 Field Object Names - Within FileMaker 8.5, it is necessary to click on each layout object to determine its name. 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 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 Name - Layouts can be compared by Field Name in order to make it possible to compare layouts from different database files, as the Field IDs will not likely match between different files.
Compare Layouts by Field ID - Layouts can also be compared by Field ID, to provide for the comparison of different layouts or different versions of the same layout within a single file. The comparison process also takes into consideration the table occurance name along with Field ID.
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 dont 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. The resulting PDF or printout can easily be incorporated into project documentation or used for mark-up during development.
