With Scribe, you can read and write Word, Excel, and PDF documents and forms directly from FileMaker. You can search contents of Word and PDF files from FileMaker. It also supports searching Excel files, HTML, RTF, and JPEG metadata. Scribe lets you process text fields within FileMaker to track changes, highlight keywords and more.

It’s available starting at US$295. Scribe is included in the 360Works Portfolio License bundle, so existing 360Works Portfolio License holders can use their license key to register Scribe at no extra charge.
