Thank you for your post.
I am unable to replicate the issue with FileMaker Pro 13.0v4 under Mac OS X 10.10.1, Mac OS X 10.9.5, Mac OS X 10.8.5, and Windows 7. Here are the steps I took:
1. In one of my database files, I created a table, TEST, with a Container field ("Container")
2. On the Layout, I formatted "Container" for Interactive content.
3. I created a script "Export PDF and Import into Interactive Container" with the following script steps:
Set Variable [ $FilePath ; Value: Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "Test.pdf" ]
Set Variable [ $ExportPDF ; Value: "filemac:" & $FilePath ]
Set Variable [ $ImportPDF ; Value: "imagemac:" & $FilePath ]
Save Records as PDF [ Restore ; No dialog ; "$ExportPDF" ; Records being browsed ]
Go to Field [ TEST::Container ]
Insert PDF [ "$ImportPDF" ]
Commit Records/Requests [ No dialog ]
4. I add one record to the table, and execute the script "Export PDF and Import into Interactive Container".
The PDF file appears in "Container".
Let me know what I'm doing differently than you so I can replicate the issue.
It seems I have been wasting your (and my) time: I can now also no longer reproduce the problem. The pdfs now show up in the container field. I spent a lot of time last week figuring this out, including several restarts, so I was pretty sure the problem was real, but now it went away. Very very sorry!! Your script was doing the same thing, so I would not have known where to start the troubleshooting....
No need for an apology. I'm sure the "problem was real". I'm glad the issue disappeared.
Besides several restarts, did you perform any changes to either FileMaker Pro, the system, or possible Adobe?
If you should encounter this issue again, please let me know.
No, I have not knowingly made any changes, not even any of the (seemingly almost daily) Adobe updates. That does not give us much to go by :-). I will be in touch if it comes back, maybe we'll then be able to look into it and find the cause. Thanks for your replies, and your patience!
could it be a file path issue ... was filemac part of the path?
I recently ended up with a png icons displayed until i switched to imagemac
