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.

Trying to use your SVG Gallery Tool and when I try to paste the button bar into a solution, I just get a list of text:
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.
I have tried to create a button bar from a small found set of the collection that comes with the solution. Although the dialogue tells me it is completed, nothing is added to my clipboard.
I took snapshots of the debugger, the script steps and the data viewer. I get the error 101 “file missing”, right after the loop. In the data viewer, I can see that the value for the button is labelKey = 0, rotation=0, flags=0.. etc
I did install.
Have you installed and enabled the BaseElements plugin ?
– there’s a button to install it, but the one, distributed with the file is not the most recent.
