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.

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
