Hi John, I use two plugins/FrameScript packages very often:
i-frame i-frame is a collection of scripts for FrameScript. The modules encompass scripts for everything! I like these scripts best: Scale Graphics - for me invaluable! FM2MIF2FM - Convert to/from MIF There are many more to get reports and to maintain formats. I can only recommend to have a look at the web-site. http://www.i-frame.itl.info/en/feature-description.html Import formats special This plugin adds some more options to the Import Formats dialog. Specifically: User variables This is a plugin which I need very often. It's from Rick Quatro, but I couldn't find it on his homepage.
