Summary

Compatibility with CS5 Illustrator (EPS Files)

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.x

Operating system version

10.5 and higher

Description of the issue

When attempting to import an Illustrator file (EPSP) created in CS5 into a container field the following message appears:

The file cannot be displayed:Untitled-1.eps

(FileName in the example above is Untitled-1.eps)

I did a bit of research and it appears that the file type of CS5 illustrator EPS files are EPSP and not EPSF.   Is there a fix in the works , is the problem known to others?

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Create an EPS file using CS5 illustrator.

2. Import file into Filemaker container field with reference.

Expected result

See preview of imported image.

Actual result

Get message:  The file cannot be displayed:

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The file cannot be displayed:Untitled-1.eps

Configuration information

n/a

Workaround

I convert the data in the container field in text and parse the result to create a URL I can use in the web viewer tool.
