To set up internet Filemaker ORBIT access:
After the first time (if you checked "permanently add entry...") you can skip steps 5 & 6. Instead choose "cn.worldwidehost.com" from the hosts dialog box.
A HANDY TRICK:
Once you have done the above, if you click on the "File" pull-down menu you will see a list of recently opened files. You can click on the file you had open and skip steps 3-7. (If you don't see a recently-opened file list pull down Edit - Preferences - Application - and check the Show Recently opened file list and click ok.)
TO VIEW ARTICLES ONLINE:
To open files (pdf, html or txt) right click on the "URL" field in orbit and select "Open" from the menu. It automatically opens the file in your text editor (for text), or internet browser (for html) or Acrobat (for pdf).
Download the free Acrobat viewer if you don't have a copy already have a copy installed on your computer here.
TO CONVERT PUBMED ARTICLES TO FILEMAKER FORMAT:
Jim has created a program that converts text files generated by PUBMED into a format that can be imported into Filemaker Orbit directly.
Download the program by right-clicking here, and selecting "save as".
