PDFs created in Windows version different than MAC version


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

I created many databases on my Windows machine and when I copied them to my MAC version (with the current update), I find that the PDFs that I generate successfully on the Windows version operate totally differently.  Is some place within the program that I can set the PDF format to make sure that they are the same.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I verified that the version works correctly on Windows and copied it again to the Mac version.  It moves down the page often cutting an image in half.

Expected result

I expected that the version created on Windows in Filemaker Pro would create the same output on an Apple machine.

Actual result

The PDF is migrating down the page, the paging is not working.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error messages.  Just PDFs that aren't paging correctly.


I haven't found a workaround.
