Summary

BROKEN - FMGo1.2 & Save Records as PDF (Create email with file as attachment) Script Step

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

1.2

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.7.4

Description of the issue

I have a button that is scripted to create a PDF and then attach it to an email. This has worked beautifully in FMP11/FilemakerGo1.1.

Guess what? It's broken in FMP/FMGo1.2, even though it is documented as a valid FMGo1.2 function on page 17 in the FMGo1.2 Dev guide. A PDF gets created, and that's it. No emailing.

The workaround? Tap Gear icon in upper right -> tap Print -> tap PDF -> tap Email.

Yeah! Four taps vs one. Obviously, not grand.
