FM12 Container bug(s) DYSFUNCTIONAL!


FileMaker Pro


FM12 Advanced

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Issue #1: Every time container field test database is opened it requires relocating the Adobe app (Mac Acrobat Pro X). EVERY TIME! Quit FM12, reopen, and it does the same thing again. Dysfunctional!

Issue #2: See uploaded image.
The field names state the action (Drag & Drop or Insert), settings for the particular field (optimized for image or interactive, and the insert possibility (Picture, PDF, File).
You can see the results. 2 of the 3 insert/reference possibilities result in the entire PDF in the field, not a reference. All other possibilities result in an apparent reference. However, double clicking produces no action.

Weirdly enough, when I convert an FM11 database that has container fields with hundreds of referenced PDFs it works perfectly. No app location problem (issue #1), no reference fields that will not open.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Issue#1: Quit FM12, re-open.

Actual result

Issue #1: Same damn message (see uploaded image #1).
