      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
