Now you get an even smarter way of managing your SVG icons, and a very smart and easy way to get a collection of icons, directly into the icons palette within your FileMaker solution.

The SVG Gallery tool works by importing your icons, taking the content of SVG files directly into a text field. From there, you can process all found icons to add the needed class in order to allow FileMaker 14 to control the color of the icon.
Now, in order to get a collection of icons into the icon palette in your solution, there is now a very smart way to do so, using the SVG Gallery tool.

Simply find the icons, you want in the gallery, do an optionally sorting, press a button and the function will now generate a buttonbar object, containing a segment for each of the found icons, with an icon on each.
This buttonbar will be placed on the clipboard. Now you just go to your solution and paste that buttonbar object. You can delete it again immediately after you have pasted it, as FileMaker will already have copied all the icons into the icon palette of that solution file.

Here is the video we did with Richard Carlton from www.learningfilemaker.com.

 

Short video will explain what the SVG format is about and how to use this tool.

    I’m unable to download the SVG Gallery tool v.2. Database errors trying to search for it at DataManix. And your submission form doesn’t work on this page at TheBrainBasket. Can you please email me the SVG Gallery tool v.2? Thank you!

      Hi Matthew
      It looks like you have not installed the BaseElements plugin, that is included in the SVG Gallery tool.
      On the first layout, there are buttons in the bottom of the screen to install the BaseElements plugin for MAC, Windows 32-bit or 64-bit.
      You can look at the BaseElements website to download the most recent version of the BaseElements plugin.
