The Developer Screen

Media Types and Groups

Media Types can be added here. This is a higher-level developer task and requires a good understanding of the way fmSpark works.

Merge Groups can be added here. This is part of groups support.


All attachments in fmSpark can be viewed here. Attachments can be used in Saved Templates and/or Drafts. The number of times the attachment is being used will be listed. You can delete an attachment by pressing the delete button. If an attachment is being used, it will be removed from the Template(s) and/or Draft(s) in which it is used. You can remove all unused attachments by pressing the Remove Unused Attachments... button.

Naming Formats

The naming formats for new Drafts, Templates and Stationery are listed here. These defaults can be changed by entering different FileMaker calculation formats.


fmSpark assets and images are stored in the a single record in the _appLibrary table.

The fmSpark toolbar s composed of a toolbar background image and icons. The toolbar background is stored in the fields, header and header_description.

The icons for the toolbars are stored in the iconLib and iconlib_labels fields. Icons in repeating fields 10-19 belong to header[1] (toolbar1)...

We use global calculation fields to display the toolbars and icons.

Drop new images and icons into the appropriate wells to change the toolbar.
