Summary

FM Pro 12 crashes when certain pdf's are dragged into container fields

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FM Pro 12

Operating system version

OSX 10.7.5

Description of the issue

I'm using a database with container fields optimized for pdf. Working on MacBook running OS 10.7.5. Some pdf's drag in and work fine. Other pdf's created in an identical manner crash FM Pro 12 when they are dragged into the field. Occasionally, if I open the pdf and use Acrobat Pro to "combine" it, then rename it as a new pdf, I can now drag it into a field and it will work properly. This work-around is not always successful however. Any suggestions?
