Image Filepaths Broken between FM 10 and FM 11


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

The problem is that some Mac users with FileMaker 11 cannot view images in container fields. This problem only affects Mac users and only some of the FMP 11 users. None of these users had any problem viewing photos in Container fields under FMP 10. I get a file not found error message.

I did discover one clue. If I change the word "imagemac" to "filemac" in the calculation listed below, the file path works in FMP 11. However, it doesn't work for the solution because the image won't display in the container field if filemac is used. As I mentioned, this calculation works correctly in FMP 10.

Abs(Get(SystemPlatform)) = 1;
"imagemac:/Drobo/SuperContainer/Files/AP/Images/" & Image_No & "/" & Image_No & ".jpg";
"imagewin://" & Image_No &"/" & Image_No & ".jpg"

Steps to reproduce the problem

Try to view an image.

Expected result

Images should display exactly the same in FMP 11 as in FMP 10.

Actual result

File not found error message.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
