      Insert pdf option missing in file converted from FM11 into FM12

      Description of the issue

      When attempting to insert a pdf into a container field in a file that was converted from FM11 to FM12 there is no option for insert pdf.  I made sure that on the insepctor the correct option was checked off on the Data tab (Interactive Content). When I create a FM12 file this is not an issue and works fine. It just does not work on converted files.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create or use an existing FM11 file that contains a container field. 
      Convert it to FM12.
      Attempt to insert a pdf.

      Create a new FM12 file that contains a container field and the option is available and works properly.

      Expected result

      I should be able to insert a pdf into that container field

      Actual result

      the option to insert a pdf is grayed out.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error message.  The "insert PDF" is not available on the menu
