Thank you for posting, you are correct ! It is easy to replicate this issue and i cannot see a simple workaround indeed. Too bad...
I also would like to add a little of matter, because my opinion is before v12, there was many options to insert files, but now, with 12 and his interactive options, and with his new Insert File script step, there are in my opinion so much different behaviors so that become confusing :• Insert Audio Video (1) -- As a Reference option fails• Insert Image -- As a Reference option works• Insert QuickTime (2) -- As a Reference option is not available because it is always a reference.• Insert File* -- As a Reference option is not a proposal but only to force end-user. A default value cannot be defined.• Insert PDF (1) -- As a Reference option works• Insert Sound (2) -- Script step desappeared, even the menu item is still here. But OK : this change is correctly documented by FMI.* New dialog with great advanced options. And it is the only of theses steps that allows directly to activate a Field. Why ?(1) Requires to activate an interactive defined object(2) Requires to activate a static defined objectBye, Fred
Thank you for post.
I can confirm this behavior occurs in FileMaker Pro 12.0v4 on both Mac OS X 10.7.5 and Windows 7. A full report was forwarded to Testing and Development for review.
