FMGo eMailed PDF prints one page no matter how many pages the PDF is.


FileMaker Go



Operating system version

OSX 10.6.6

Description of the issue

from tech talk...


I saw this when using Printopia to print a PDF generated with FMGo.
Blamed Printopia.
Tried eMail from iPad of 3 page PDF.
Received in OSX Mail.
The mail message when printed in situ goes three pages but splits the PDF into bits as needed.
Printing the PDF exactly replicates your issue - three pages into one.

I'd say this is a bug.  What is the URL to file it?  Certainly not easily found on the FMI website.

I have just been handed a database that has a problem. There is a three page layout that is used by sales force in the field, they all carry iPhones running FMGo. Using the Save as PDF script with the attach to email option they are able to send their sales orders back to the warehouse for immediate processing. When first created this script would email a three page PDF - it still does when I run it from FMPro. Nowadays, running FMGo, it emails an image of the three pages, resized to fit onto a single page, that is, three tiny versions of each page stacked on top of each other. It's saving trees but it is useless. Has anyone else noticed this?

Create multipage document. Save as PDF and eMail.

Expected result

Can print the page PDF as three page document.
