Cannot open documents inserted into container as file


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

MAC OS 10.6.6

Description of the issue

I have filemaker pro 11 and use Mac OS 10.6.6. I cannot open a file which is inserted into a container field. It works if I insert a PDF as a quick time or use a file reference for the other types of files. It does not work when I use insert file without the file reference.

After inserting the file, there is an icon with the correct file name in the container but cannot double click it.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Checked preferences
Tried multiple file types and files

I am able to open the file if inserted as file reference. Also PDFs appear to work when inserted as a QuickTime object.

Expected result

I expect the pdf file to open in a pdf viewer when I double click on the icon.

Actual result

Nothing happens
