    still no joy printing pdf content displayed in container fields

      Summary

      still no joy printing pdf content displayed in container fields

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12...

      Operating system version

      Windows

      Description of the issue

      This problem has been reported before and it looks like nothing has changed since I have reported this...
      If you display a pdf in a container on a layout, then print the layout, the contents of the pdf does not display in preview mode, or when printing.
      This works perfectly on the mac but not on windows, VERY frustrating, especially since I have a client who needs to do this.
      The container is a small preview box of line art that needs to be re-printed from FileMaker Pro...
      With version 11, I used to use the web viewer, but since upgrading to v12, this no longer works and there are also inconsistencies with the adobe web viewer across platforms, so this is no longer a possible solution.
      What is seen on the layout should be what prints, on BOTH platforms.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      create a layout with a container, formatted to display interactive content (form view).
      Insert a pdf into the container.
      Enter preview mode, the image of what displays in the container disappears.
      Try it on Mac OS, it works, on windows it disappears.

      Expected result

      A true representation of what is displayed on the layout

      Actual result

      nothing within the container field

      Workaround

      none, please advise
