[] Fremont, California - .com Solutions Inc. has released FmPro Migrator Developer Edition 8.87 as a maintenance release adding support for FileMaker 18 table consolidation projects on macOS Catalina. This release supports FileMaker Pro Advanced 11 - 18 on macOS. A summary of improvements in FmPro Migrator 8.87 includes:

* Added compatibility with macOS 10.15 Catalina when creating TOs and Relationships
* Fixed an issue updating TO base table names having Unicode characters
* Improved the data import scripts by specifying the source database filename; Scripts will still need to be slightly modified to map the fields from the correct source table to the destination table in situations where there are multiple tables in a source file
* Added a new feature to the layout creation Pass #2 processing to allow restarting layout processing starting at the currently selected layout when holding the Shift key while clicking this button
* The individual Custom Functions creation feature for FileMaker databases checks for whether FileMaker 15 versions are being used and prompts for using the newer and improved Clipboard XML creation feature instead
* Added a new Table Consolidation Layout Troubleshooter app; This tool uses the new FileMaker 18 XML file to help troubleshoot issues with missing layouts during the automated Pass#1 layout creation process

* Fixed an issue with Field IDs = 0 being created within FileMaker databases from VFP DBF files. This problem resulted in the fields being "invisible" to the FileMaker database and not allowing importing or deletion of the fields.
* Fixed an issue with VFP PRG code script steps not being properly commented when pasting into FileMaker.

* Fixed the database connection info for PostgreSQL database connections in the app/Config/database.php file.

* FmPro Migrator is now notarized by Apple to prevent warnings when launching the app on macOS 10.15 Catalina.
