Is ths FileMaker 11? 12 is now out and they made changes with container fields--doubt that this is the issue but we need to be sure.
Where is the container field located on the layout? By any chance, does the top of the container field touch or cross the boundary into the header layout part?
When you select the container field while in layout mode and then check the sliding and visibility section of the inspector's position tab, is "hide when printing" selected?
Have you set the properties of the container field to 'Hide when printing'?
im still on filemaker 11 pro adv, the container fields are no where near the page margins, and i dont have a header part on this layout, just a body and foot and the containers are not touching the footer or even close to it. the hide when printing checkbox is unchecked.
Are you printing from a found set of multiple records or a found set of just one record?
If multiple records, are you on the first record when you can see the image in browse mode?
its shows total 81 records unsorted, i can see the images on all records, just not when previewing or printing.
But do you see the picture on the very first record?
Are you using a script to preview and/or print these records?
Are you printing using "current record" or "records being browsed" when you print?
If "records being browsed" are you printing all the records or a specified page range?
When you enter preview mode, preview starts previewing your found set starting with the first record and it may not be the current record. This can easily produce an apparent discrepancy between what data was on your screen before you entered preview mode.
Good news and Bad news,
good news is that it now works great, no issues that i can see.
bad news is in the process of making a few changes in the database it began to work and i have no idea what the problem was and what fixed it.
the fields that were not showing were actually from a related table, i had made some modifications to fix another bug i was having and it somehow this issue was solved. ill post back on this thread if i do notice something wrong still.
