Thank you for your post.
FileMaker Pro 13.0v5 and FileMaker Pro 13.0v9 are nearly identical. The only change was for a potential security risk accessing FileMaker Server.
Open URL works fine with a PDF using the file:/// protocol. What error message are you receiving when you execute that script step?
Thanks TSGal, I'll update to v9 soon.
When I hit the button to run the script (one step) using the Open URL command for a Web page (file:///) or Web site (http://) it opens a browser and goes to the link/location in the script. When I do that for a .pdf file (file:///;) nothing happens. (no error message)
It used to open a new tab, if Google Chrome was already open, or launch Foxit if no browser was open.
What if you format your Open URL request like this (use // instead of ///)
The fact that nothing is happening usually means that the path syntax is incorrect and therefore the file (PDF) cannot be located and opened.
