PDFs in Containers started to open automatically in Adobe Acrobat: Please Help

Post

     I have been using Container optimised for Interactive Contents for displaying embedded PDFs for one year or so. Never had a problem. But now every time I open a record that has a PDF stored in a Container, the PDF pops up automatically in Adobe Acrobat. Therefore I cannot scroll or read the PDF in its container anymore and I have to close down Adobe Acrobat to go back to my FileMaker database.

     Any tips ideas etc?

     Kind regards nerosunero

     PS

     Yesterday I contacted FileMaker Technical Support. The answer I got was prompt and kind but also, unfortunately, useless:

"To completely prevent PDFs from automatically loading, you could optimise the container field for Images, instead of Interactive content. I hope it helps"

      

     my specs:

     FileMaker Pro Advanced 12 0v4

     Adobe Acrobat XI Version 11.0.5

     windows 7
