      Summary

      container field not holding jpg if image source is no longer on desktop

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.0v1

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.8.4

      Description of the issue

      until a few days ago (June 22nd 2013) I always placed images in container field by going to INSERT, then PICTURE and pick the image on desktop and it is in that container field.

      And when the images are trashed or taken out of desktop, there was no issue, meaning the images in containers fields staid in the field forever.

      Now, if the source image from the desltop is trashed, when I reopen the file the container fields all say " The file cannot be found: xxxxx" xxx is the name of the file that can not be found.

      I have to put the image back from the trash to desktop ... then the image(s) reappear in the field.

      This is something that is happening to 9 out of 9 databases that I have put images in, .. and the images no longer show as an image but as a file that can not be found.

      HAs something changed in the pass few days, how do I solve that problem.

      the big issue is too: When database is put on a USB to be open on another machine, the source images are not in that new machine so , no images are showing in those containers !!
