Save a Copy As: Self-Contained Copy (Single File) not working under certain conditions.

Post

 Found 3 issues (issues to me) that are not desirable (ok, they are very bad). Containers are set to "External" storage: 

1)  Log-in with a Guest account without “Full Access” will not generate a proper Save a Copy as: Self-Contained Copy (Single File). It goes thru the motions, but the file does not have containers with embed storage.

2) Runtime files (with “Full Access” account) will not  generate a proper Save a Copy as: Self-Contained Copy (Single File). It goes thru the motions, but the file does not have containers with embed storage.

3) Log-in with a Guest account set to a “Custom” Privilege Set will not generate a proper Save a Copy as: Self-Contained Copy (Single File). It goes thru the motions, but the file does not have containers with embed storage.

Perhaps this is written down an explained somewhere in the manuals, even so, it is not desirable. FM files should not have to have Log-in to "Full Access" account to generate a proper Self-Contained Copy (Single File) for iOS use.

Can people at Filemaker (or ...)  verify that the above conditions are suppose to be so, or are they really issues.
