Scribe is the ultimate text processing plug-in. Use it to read and write text from Microsoft Office and PDF files, find what changed in a text field, and highlight text matching any criteria.
If you've been using 360Works Textractor, 360Works Difference Engine, or 360Works Patterns, those functions are all now included in 360Works Scribe. Scribe combines all of these features, plus adds the ability to read and write PDF, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word documents. If you've purchased these plugins, you are eligible for upgrade pricing on Scribe.

"Inspector would not be all that it is without the help of the Scribe Plug-in from 360Works"—Vincenzo Menanno - Director of FileMaker Development, Beezwax
"Scribe has been working very well. I was telling Richard the other day that the plugin is worth its price just for the substitute function
that you added"—Garrett Debski, Richard Carlton Consulting
"I have put Scribe in place and it is working flawlessly so far... We have under way a test of a pdf form that has 393 fields, some are extracted and the rest are inserted into the form. So far, I cannot report any problems at all... 360Works and you have done a marvelous job!" —Charles Huff, Briggs & Associates
"I've just seen the Scribe plugin. I'm too dumbstruck for more than two words: WOW! and Thanks! "—Marc Thewes, Thewes & Reuter

What about Web Publishing and FileMaker Server?
If you purchase the Enterprise License (see below), then you will be able to use the plugin with the FileMaker Web Publishing Engine. This means that when you use our plugins in your FileMaker scripts, they will work the same way with Instant Web Publishing (IWP) or WebDirect. It also means that your Custom Web Publishing applications (with XSLT, PHP, or any other web technology) can call FileMaker scripts that use our plugins.
Can I use this plugin with my FileMaker runtime solution?
Yes, all of our plugins work in FileMaker runtimes solutions, just copy the plugin to the runtime's Extensions folder.
What kind of licenses are there?
Most of our plugins are available in 3 licenses: a demo version which works for 2 hours every time you launch FileMaker, a Workgroup license for 10 or fewer users, and an Enterprise license for unlimited users within a single organization.
What about FileMaker Go?
If you'd like to add plug-in functionality to a mobile solution, there are a number of options available. Plug-ins cannot be installed directly on a iPhone or iPad, but you can trigger a script on a machine that does have the plug-in installed. Using FileMaker Server, you can have routine scripts that will process all the outstanding function calls. For an example on how to do this, see this article on accomplishing this with Plastic. Alternatively you could integrate RemoteScripter to trigger server side scripts. Finally, FMRPC is a separate product developed as a collaboration between Skeleton Key and 360Works.
