Containers in preview mode on windows

Question asked by ThomasStaehli on Nov 13, 2012


Containers in preview mode on windows


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX 10.6 - 10.8 and windows 7, windows 2008 R2 server with FMS 12 adv.

Description of the issue

I have a layout with a 2 column list with a container field. This layout is used for printing and save as PDF and as I don't want the result to be too heavy (the pictures are between 1 and to Mo), I set up the container to show interactive content.

On mac, when I enter preview mode, the layout stays blank for a quick moment and loads all the pictures. On windows, I get a quick popup for each picture which slows down the process dramatically.

Here's a link to a small video to show you exactly what I mean.

Expected result

having the same behaviour and speed on both OSX and windows

Actual result

On windows, the layout takes much longer to enter in preview mode
