Importing large PDF files to a database crashes FMP13 on 2 Macs

Post

     Hi,

     I'm having serious issues with importing PDF files into my database (using FMP 13 on my mid 2012 MacBook Air, OS X 10.9.4): I have a very large collection of scanned books (size of files: from a few mb to 300mb and more; many books are around 150mb).

     When dropping a "heavy" PDF to a container, FMP crashes systematically. 

     So: have you heard of a specified size limit for importing PDF files? Can you think of any solution to prevent FMP from constantly crashing? I have already removed 2 Adobe plugins from my library; I have tried not to embed the files, creating links to the related folders, with no success. The database was created from a starter solution; I have tested it on 2 Macs (with identical configurations).

     Thanks in advance for your help!
