Summary

Low res printing and PDF with External Storage Graphics

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

12.0.2.232

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.7.4

Description of the issue

When we want to print or save as pdf a layout with a hires pictures (10-16 Mbpx) into a container with external storage, the ouput is in lowres like the thumbnail into the layout.

When we made an Export Field Contents, its export the complete picture.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Insert a HiRes picture into a container with external storage onto a FileMaker Server
2. Onto a layout sets for print, place the container field with Optimisation at on
3. Go into preview or not and make a Print or a Save As PDF...

Expected result

A PDF or a print with a full res picture

Actual result

A print with picture pixelated in low res.

Workaround

To bypass the problem, we zoom in, into browse mode, to force FileMaker Server to generate (or download ?) a new thumbnail with more resolution and after we can make a PDF or a good print.
