Filemaker refuses to paste pictures


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

When I copy a picture to insert it in an entry page in a Filemaker file, the picture doesn't get pastet. I just get a white square, the size of which corresponds to the photo I copied.

This problem is new. I have lots of pictures already in the file entries, but suddenly I cannot add new pictures.Is it a bug ?

I even tried to copy a picture from an old entry (so that I am sure that it is a file format that worked well previously with FileMaker, but I still only get a white square and the software is locked afterwards, so I have to reboot the computer.

The file in question is fairly large, approx 800 MB.

By the way, what is the max file size FileMaker can operate with ? . 1 GB or 2 GB or something different ?

Steps to reproduce the problem

I have done it several times, so it is definitely reproducible.
