    My feature request for FileMaker 15 and beyond would be support for RAW images and possibly other previews as well, in container fields.

     

    While it is possible to import RAW images, Excel files etc. as binary files, they don't show in preview. This could be a very suseful enhancement of FileMaker because:

    - For an image database, you'd want to store the RAW camera files, but you certainly would want them to show like PNG or JPG.

    - For MS Offfice and iWork files (and other formats such as SVG) this would make it much easier to sell a FileMaker solution as a document management system.
