Thank you for your post.
Unfortunately, I cannot duplicate the problem using FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced. Then again, I'm having difficulty with step #4. When I find the item and click on it, the icon shows on top with the Name, Size, Kind, Created, Modified, Last Opened and Dimensions appearing below it. I then click on icon view, and all the files appear as icons. My JPG files all show a picture. When I double-click on any of them, the image inserts into the Container field without incident.
What kind of Container object are you trying to insert? I will do my best here to duplicate the problem.
Hmmm interesting. It may have something to do with the image type. I just tried again selecting a .TIF and it came in okay. Then I went back and did it again this time selecting a .PNG with alpha chan (as I had done before) and the problem occurred again. So, I've narrowed it down to at LEAST that image type presenting the problem.
Thank you for your help researching this issue.
Unfortunately, I only have one PNG file, and it does not have alpha-channel transparency. Do you have a file that I can test? I have sent you a private message (top of this screen - right side - just below the blue bar - X Messages) with instructions where to send the file.
I received your PNG file. Unfortunately, I was unable to duplicate the problem. This is what I did.
On my iMac running OS X 10.5.6, I launched FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced and created a database file "Container.fp7" with the following two fields:
I entered two records:
I performed a Find for Name = TSGal
With the one record found, I clicked in the container field, pulled down the Insert menu and selected "Picture...". I located the folder where your "window_error_24" PNG file was located, switched to icon view and double-clicked the image. No problem.
I quit FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced, launched FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced, and opened Container.fp7.
I performed a Find for Name = billworld
With the other record now found, I clicked in the container field, pulled down the Insert menu and select "Picture...". Now, my listing of files is already in icon view, so I found the "window_error_24" file, double-clicked it and the picture displays in the container field without incident.
Let me know what I am doing different than you, and I'll try to duplicate the problem, EXACTLY.
