      Summary

      PDFs in container fields open up in Acrobat instead of displaying in container field itself

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      14

      Operating system version

      windows

      Description of the issue

      In the past couple of versions of Filemaker (13 and 12), I had container fields which store PDF's (which have come from scanned documents).  I want the image to display (whether or not it is readable) in the container field.  I don't want it to open up in Adobe Acrobat.  After installing version 14 this evening, I open up the database, and every record with a PDF opens the PDF in Acrobat, and doesn't display anything in the container field.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      take a database created in a previous version that has container fields storing PDFs and open in version 14

      Expected result

      the PDF displays in the container field and not in Acrobat

      Actual result

      The PDF is opening in Acrobat

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none.  Filemaker doesn't seem to think this is an error

      Configuration information

      Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
