|Path||The path where to save for MacOS.
If you don't specify a path, the last one used in the dialogs will be used.
No longer used on MacOS Mojave/Catalina due to raised security by Apple which prevents us changing the dialog.
Returns OK or error.
DescriptionSaves database as XML.
This requires FileMaker Pro Advanced 18 and performs the relevant menu command for you.
This must be the last step in a script, because it triggers an asynchronously process to make a report. So the plugin will run the menu command, enters the file name and the save button for you.
If you like to run other things later, simply run a script 5 seconds later with FM.RunScriptLater.
May not work if debugger window is visible.
See also FM.RunDatabaseDesignReport.
Fixed directory path passing for macOS in plugin version 10.4. If path contains a file name, we pass that to the save dialog and if possible don't show the dialog at all.
