    FM 11 to 12 database conversion problems



      FM 11 to 12 database conversion problems


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac OS X

      Description of the issue

      I have just upgraded from FM 11 to 12 and now when I try to send/save record as a pdf it does not open an e-mail to send file.  Also, my radio buttons no longer work.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      create pdf then send/save as a pdf.  It allows me to save record as a pdf but does not bring up e-mail to send.  I have made sure the check box for create email with pdf as attachment is checked. The radio buttons that previously worked on my database when it was in FM 11 format no longer can be clicked after converting to FM 12 format.

      Expected result

      new e-mail popup to send record in pdf format.  radio button to activate next to item.

      Actual result

      nothing happens for either

               What happens if you create a small brand new from scratch file and test these two issues? Do they work in such a test file?

               If they work in the test file, try recovering your file and test the recovered file to see if the issue remains in the recovered file. (Do this even if the recover process does not report finding any problems.)
