      Stored PDF automatically opens externally in Adobe Reader when record opens.

      Post

      Using FMPro 13 in Windows 7, I'm developing a database of PDF files. With an interactive container field containing a PDF, just opening a record immediately and automatically opens the PDF externally in Adobe Reader but shows nothing in the container. It doesn't matter whether I add the PDF by dragging & dropping or by "Insert PDF", or whether I store the PDF in the db or access by reference. A Popover containing the PDF field will act the same way, i.e. will open the PDF externally. In any case, the container is not set to "start playback automatically".

      Will appreciate any insights.  Happy Thanksgiving.
