Container field - Insert PDF field grayed out


FileMaker Pro


12 v1

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

We place a lot of PDF's into container fields.  Under version 11, you simply right clicked and followed the steps to insert your PDF.  The new version appears to have a menu item for "Insert PDF" but that is grayed out and cannot be selected.

All previous PDF's that are currently in the container fields work fine and can be launched directly from FM by double clicking.  You can place a new PDF in by dragging it on top of the container field and it appears there but you cannot launch it. 

Is this a problem, is there an option that needs to be selected somewhere or what?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Nothing special to reproduce it.

Expected result

You cannot insert PDF's.
