Title

Open pdf files in Acrobat

Post

I'm using Filemaker Pro 12.0v4 on Windows 8.1. In my database, I've createed a container field optimized for interactive content and I store pdf files in it. I'm using Acrobat Pro 11.0.9 as well. Everyuthing works fine, but I'd like to be able, in Browse mode, to double-click on the image of the pdf file and have the file open in Acrobat Pro. I won't need to edit and re-save the document - just to be able to read it in Acrobat Pro.

I know I can save a copy of the pdf from the record and then open it, but if I don't really need to cluter up my disk with file copies. Is there a script or a feature that can meet my need? Many thanks!
