    I am looking for the information about printing process. I still can’t find any information about this. Could we print out all the entries we have input? Is it possible to print out all the material in the form of a paper copy? It would be useful if we can submit the material for publication.

    They are multiple ways FieldWorks data can be exported. Exporting data using Pathway is quite popular. With Pathway, your data is formatted using a stylesheet into Open Office or PDF as well as other formats. Once satisfied the data looks as desired, you can print it out.

    Info on Pathway can be found at
    From FLEx, it is accessible in the Export dialog box (File > Export…)

    I want to ask that do you have version for the Mac User?

    Hi Joes,
    We do not currently have a version for the Mac. Many people have asked for that and it will be done at some point.

    I’m wondering if it is possible to add a picture to a record in Data Notebook? Many times my culture observations have associated pictures which I want to link to the written description.

    Hi Mike,
    You can save the link to a picture (or sound file) in the notebook record. In Version 7 of FieldWorks, in the Notebook area, go to the Record Edit tool. Click on the field you want to contain the picture link (a text file) and select ‘Insert -> Link to file…’. The location of the picture will be saved.
