Version History:

2.1.4 - Sparkle auto-update fix

  • New features in OS X 10.11 may have broken sparkle update for some users.
  • 2.1.4 should fix that issue

2.1.3 - Massive Speed Increase!

  • Due to the gracious feedback and testing assistance of Radu-Dan Sabau, fmXRaySpecs is now dramatically faster (particularly for complex layouts).

2.1.1 - Tons of new features:

  • Added support for FileMaker 14, including button bars, onObjectAVPlayerChange triggers, and placeholder text on buttons and fields.
  • New indicators for how much of the CSS of an object was overridden.
  • New summary of how much of the CSS was overridden on all of the objects taken together.
  • Much better support for viewing labels/titles of buttons, tabs, and popovers.
  • Better support for viewing themes on some object types.
  • Sparkle support! All future updates will be handled automatically.


  • Added support for FileMaker 13, including popovers and sliding controls
  • Get the theme and stylesheet of each object, and anywhere the CSS was overridden
  • In the preview window you can now set a background color and change the highlight color
  • Lots of work to make it more future-proof (or as future-proof as possible)
And fmXRaySpecs is now FREE to download and use.

1.1.0 - Tons of new features:

  • Added support for FileMaker 12!
  • Non-field objects... find those pesky hidden web viewers
  • Much better searching and filtering...
  • Exporting...

1.0.3 - Added support for 10.7 Lion (finally). Also resolved an edge case for systems that make heavy use of custom menus, which incidently resolved a potential problem for systems that had re-mapped the command-L keyboard command. fmXRaySpecs now changes mode using the popup menu in the lower left-hand corner of each screen. All users should update.

1.0.2 - Added support for retrieving the name of the value list on the field (popups and pull-downs), and fixed a bug where refresh would not complete if there was a search criteria applied. If you have used a previous version, this new column may appear on the far right, as the tool tries not to alter your column width or ordering betweens runs (or versions).

1.0.1 - Resolved minor bug that periodically caused fmXRaySpecs to fail to control FileMaker Pro (non-Advanced)

1.0.0 - Initial Release
