Summary

When using Save/Send Records As PDF, Filemaker crashes.

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v5

Operating system version

10.9.1

Description of the issue

My Filemaker "programme" has a number of layouts with scripts which, for example, allow me to save a purchase order as a PDF in an email addressed to the correct supplier with Purchase Order XXXX as the subject, and a relevant message. These scripts have worked perfectly since they were written, but suddenly don't.

At first I thought the scripts could be the problem, until I discovered the Save Records As PDF, which is part of all these scripts, doesn't work from the pull-down menu either. So it's not the scripts.

Workaround

I can use Print and Mail PDF but then I have to enter all the details manually. My scripts saved me a lot of time by automating the whole process, and eliminating entry errors.
