Scenario Print Items
The CoCGMS has a feature which allows the keeper to create basic player visual aids. In a typical CoC game, these are things like diary entries, telegrams, found scribblings, drug prescription forms, etc. While FileMaker is more of a database application than it is a graphics design program, some basic functionality for creating these sorts of things has been incorporated into the CoCGMS.
The basic process of creating a printed player aid is to load a background image into the system (stored in catalogs as a Print Template) and then creating the overlaying text. The Internet can offer a treasure trove of background images to use for Print Items if you look hard enough.
FileMaker offers standard text controls such as fonts, size, color, style, etc. Creating or editing Print Items can be done on either the Win/Mac or iPad interfaces but there are some interoperability limitations posed by the iOS environment. Font availability on the iOS platform and the inability of adding new fonts means that the iPad version of the CoCGMS may not display print items as they were created on a Windows or Mac installation. The best approach for Print Items is to use a Windows or Mac installation to generate and print them for your players.
You can load a Print Template (background image) and then control the overlay column format used to constrain the text you add to it. Several column formats are available and you can adjust the margins to some degree to work with the background you have loaded.
