Inserting a .pdf file in a Container Field Creates a .jpg file in External Storage

Post

     I am using Filemaker 12.0v3 on Mac OS X 10.8.2.  I have a container field set to external, open storage and optimized for interactive content.  I have thumbnails set to temporary storage.

     When I insert a .pdf file into the container field (using drag and drop), an additional file, a .jpg file, with the same name is created and stored in the external storage location together with the .pdf file.

     1.  Why does this happen?

     2.  Can I prevent it from happening (assuming I want to after learning the answer to question 1), and if so, how?

     Thanks.
