Does leaving out the "filemac:/" text make any difference?
Possible bug reports should be posted over in Report an Issue where they will then be seen by Techs that work for FileMaker inc.
Thanks for the response Phil.
If I remove the "filemac:/", it says that it cannot find the file.
For those that are having the same problem, I have worked around it by using an applescript to get the original file location from the alias file. Here is the applescript:
tell application "Finder"
set theFilePath to alias theFile
set HFSfilePath to the original item of theFilePath as text
I will report the issue as a bug
