FMP12, container, drag drop, reference only, double click to open
Using FMP12. I have a container field which is set to store the files outside of the database.
I drag a file onto the container, and I can see the file appear in the folder structure.
If I try to double click the container to open the file, nothing happens.
If I rightclick and select "insert file" (and tick the 'reference only' option), I can double click it just fine.
I appreciate that before version 12 a dragged and dropped file would be embedded, and so double click wouldn't work. But now drag and drop DOES use a reference to the file, yet double clicking still doesn't work.
Is there a solution to this please? Is ti a bug or a feature?
All I want to do is drag a file into filemaker and then double click to open it (and the file must be stored outside of the database). Sounds like it should be easy!
My experiments with 12 show that Drag and drop copies the file to the container. It does not store a reference.
Exactly how did you do this?
