Save as PDF -mac to windows error


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

Using the script action Save as PDF on a Mac results in a corrupt file in a windows environment (win7).
Mac to Mac appears OK.

Steps to reproduce the problem

From a script I am "saving as PDF" to a windows server ( from a remote Mac) and windows users are reporting a corrupt file - or at least a file which doesn't show all the text.

This occurs if I save to the desktop first then copy to the server.
