Need more information.
What version of filemaker ?
What Operating System ?
Another question I forgot to ask, is are you using a script to insert your pdf or are you right clicking then clicking insert? If your not using a script then take a look at the following link for known issue.
If you are using a script, then you could have a script bug or a relationship problem, which would require more information on your layout design and your script.
thank you for replying. i was familiar with the link you provided but discounted it until you re-sent it. i uninstalled adobe reader 10. now i am getting the message in gif below. it isn't allowing me to use Preview. What is a suitable alternative you reckon?
thanks for your help...it cleared a lot of things up already.
p.s. the version of adobe reader i had was 11.x - the latest version.
I uninstalled Adobe Reader and re-installed it and then chose it from list in Applications and it worked this time. My first instinct is always user error, but who knows? The version of Adobe I had on there I installed yesterday. Thank you S Chamblee for taking the time and your sharing your insight.
