FM-JS Extended Rich Text Editor instructions:

• It is best to test this solution on a Mac or PC where only 1 version of FileMaker is installed
     - this Full Featured Editor was integrated for use in FM 19 and works with previous versions 
     - after making an edit, click the Save button (auto save is not available yet)


• Works on FM Client versions 19 (default) for PC & Mac (local & hosted)
     - JSEditor 2020 is functional on both Local & FM Server installs 
     - Add Image feature may not work on a FM Server hosted file 
     - whichever FM Client version is installed last is considered the default

• If testing on an OS with multiple installs of FileMaker where testing on an earlier then default version is used:
     - the Save process will throw an ERROR
     - eg: where FM 18 Client is installed last (default), testing on FMP 19, 17, 16 will fail to Save
     - if you are able to alter the OS default for FileMaker application, then the default version you set will function as expected
