Summary

Double-click does not open files stored in container field in FM12  Mac Trial version

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FM12 Trial

Operating system version

Mac OS 10

Description of the issue

Double-clicking a file (usually Keynote) does not open it in the Trial version I tried. This function works in FM 9, FM 11 and Bento 4. I want to upgrade to FM 12, but the 'double-click' function is a big time-saver for me.

Workaround

Exporting field contents produces a copy which I can modify, then relocate to the original's position. This means I have to adjust the file's name, then delete the original, then set the file name back to its earlier name. Simpler not to use Filemaker!!!!!!
