bento to FMP ADV to FMP GO inconsistencies..


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

migrated bento  to fmp adv 12 (finally able to bring over the media files in the migration software.. better late than never..) ..   on my  mac, the  media field  setting 'set to play automatically on record open'  works fine... on filemaker go... it doesn't work this way..   you have to open the file and 'play' it. can't script it.. and when it does play on the ipad.. that' s ALL you can do... and i don't know  why?     there seems to be real problem playing any audio file and doing anything else...  seems pretty basic function to still be missing in FMP GO..

Steps to reproduce the problem

sync fmp adv to fmp go..  open the file.

Expected result

go to record.. hear the mp3 file in the media file in that record play..   move to new record.. first record mp3 stop.. 2nd starts..   all while leaving the .pdf file in the foreground.. as it does on the computer..

Actual result

nothing plays.. if you play the mp3 the screen takes over the entire ipad an you must stop the playback to go back and see any of the other fields in the record..
