Presumably, this is a container field? What storage options did you specify for it?
Yes is a container field from a related table in another file.
The settings are:
-Store container data externally ( relative to [hosted location]/files/(name of fm file)/ )
In the layout the field is set as "Interactive Content" in the inspector.
Let me also specify that the files are in FM Server Advanced 12.
I've been reading documentation and also tested different settings, but i'm sure I'm missing something.
It may be a limitation of IWP, I'm not sure. You might try using a web viewer to display the contents of the PDF--which means you'd have to change the way the files are stored or you may need to use Insert Picture (If using the Mac OS) to insert the PDF.
There's also a third party product called SuperContainer.
The SuperContainer should do the job. Sadly it doesn't fit in the budjet of the project which was counting on this feature of FM12 to be able to download PDF from web browser.
The office client machines are all PC and the PDFs are multipage, so "insert Picture" cannot be used in this solution.
Perhaps the web wiever can be an option, could you pls give me a short description on how to upload the files in order to be able to see them on a Web viewer?
I've just noted that the address of the PDF is pointing on the local address of the server:
where http://192.168.2.51:16000 should be domain related to the fix IP used to connect from the internet.
Perhaps some settings to tweak on the server?
