Summary

FMP10 Runtime disables PDF printing

Description of the issue

FileMaker Products Tested: FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced, FileMaker Pro 10 RuntimeOperating Systems Tested: Windows XP SP2Detailed Issue Description:When I create a runtime solution with FMP10A, PDF printing is removed. The "Save As PDF" button actually disappears from the Status Toolbar, rather than simply turning grey. The "PDF..." menu item also disappears, even in custom menus. This issue does not occur when the same database is opened with FMP10A instead of the runtime application, even with limited privilege sets and custom menus in place. Remarkably it is possible to create a new custom menu item with "no command" attached and then assign it to the "Save As PDF" script step. So the issue seems to be only with the default menu command and the toolbar button in runtime, since the script step is unaffected. (Although it's not a workaround I want to employ for such a glaring bug.)
