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
