Summary

Insert From URL - inserts file not picture into container field

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v3

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.9.3

Description of the issue

I'm downloading some jpg images into a container field using the  Insert From URL script step. Some images are not inserted as a picture but rather as a file so we just see the file icon not the preview of the photo.

If I view the URL in a web browser then save the image to my computer then insert that picture using the "Insert Picture" menu command the jpg is inserted as a picture successfully and I can see the photo preview.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. create a script that uses the Insert From URL script step to insert from a URL into a container field
2. perform the script

Expected result

JPG from URL is inserted as a picture not as a file

Actual result

JPG from URL is inserted as a file not a picture

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

N/A

Configuration information

I will send you the URL I'm using via private message as it's a confidential URL.

Workaround

Manually save JPG from URL to disk via web browser then insert manually into container field using the "Insert Picutre" menu command.
