      Summary

      Container Fields Change to File Icon

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      Mac 10.10.1

      Description of the issue

      Have a file with containers into which I import .eps files (thank you for fixing the eps glitch). It works fine for a while, and then -- and this is the best description I can give you -- it seems that the application 'runs out of memory", so to speak. What would previously correctly display as an image of the EPS file switches to a generic file icon, and I have to quit Filemaker and relaunch to get it to behave. Works well for a while, then after a bit, starts showing file icons again. In "get info," I have the settings set to open in low res, but I am not sure if that's even related, and it doesn't fix the issue.

      See image I attached. On the left, before, you will see the outline of a black and white umbrella. After moving thru the DB several times, flipping between different layouts and so forth, I get the results on the right, where the umbrella outline is replaced with a generic EPS file icon.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      I just keep working in the app. After 20 or 30 navigation moves, flipping between different layouts, it decides it can't handle the display anymore and serves up generic file icons instead of the contents of the eps file.

      Expected result

      I'd like to see previews of my eps files.

      Actual result

      I see generic eps file icons.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None.
