"Save as PDF" - Works on 1st gen. iPad but not on 3rd??


Is this a known bug? Am I missing a local setting on the iPad 3? I'm tearing my hair out here.


Steps to Reproduce: 

1) Create script with the following steps:

  • Set Variable [ $fileName; Value:"Test File" & Get ( CurrentTime ) & ".pdf" ]
  • Set Variable [ $docPath; Value:Get ( DocumentsPath ) & $fileName ]
  • Save Records as PDF [ File Name: “$docPath”; Current record ] [ Document - Compatibility: Acrobat 7 and later ] [ Pages - Number Pages From: 1; Include: All pages ] [ Security - Printing: High Resolution; Editing: Any except extracting pages; Enable copying; Enable Screen Reader ] [ Initial View - Show: Pages Panel and Page; Page Layout: Single Page; Magnification: 100% ] [ Restore; No dialog ]
  • Show Custom Dialog [ Title: "FM GO Doc Directory Listing"; Message: Get ( DocumentsPathListing ); Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “No” ]

2) Connect to database file on remote host using an iPad 1G and an iPad 3G (both running iOS 5.1.1 and FM Go 12.0.4) and run script.


Actual Results:

On 1st gen. iPad, final step shows Dialog that looks like this (assuming previously empty Documents directory):



On 3rd gen. iPad, Dialog looks like this:



Further inspection shows that file was indeed saved as expected on iPad 1G, and that no file was saved on iPad 3G.


Expected Results:

Expected same result from both iPads.
