One of the gems uncovered at the recent FileMaker developer conference is Dracoventions 2EmpowerFM Developer Assistant. John Sindelar mentioned it in his “FileMaker Year in Review” session and since purchasing it, I’ve saved a lot of time and frustration. It assists by making the FileMaker developer environment more friendly and powerful. Specifically, I am able to text search the relationship graph, import field mapping dialogs, and scripts. It’s awesome! If you do any kind of intensive FileMaker development check it out. It’s well worth the money.

One important thing to remember if you ever close the assistant window…Press Command-Option-Shift-X to bring it back.

Matt Petrowsky has provided this video demonstration of this tool.
