Broken? Save Records as PDF (Create email with file as attachment) Script Step in FMGo1.2

Post

I have a button that is scripted to create a PDF and then attach it to an email. This has worked beautifully in FMP11/FilemakerGo 1.1.

Guess what? It's broken in FMP/FMGo 1.2, even though it is documented as a valid FMGo 1.2 function on page 17 in the FMGo 1.2 Dev guide. A PDF gets created, and that's it. No emailing.

The workaround? Tap Gear icon in upper right -> tap Print -> tap PDF -> tap Email.

Yeah! Four taps vs one. Obviously, not grand.
