No Preview Mode, an alternative?


     I have a report/layout with lots of sliding fields, which extends to approx. 8 or 9 pages in Browse mode. In FM Pro, I have a script that automatically flips to Preview mode to tidy things up and this reduces the report to 2 or 3 pages, works great.

     However, Preview mode isn't available in FM Go so I've been trying to find a work around. I tried the Print script line and set it to 'Open PDF in Preview' but this just generates a Print Setup dialog. It's workable but it involves additional steps for the user and also means that I have to enable Send/Save options for emailing, printing etc.

     What I would like to do is generate the PDF as and when required, open it for viewing and then discard it when closed with no additional steps from the user. Is this possible?
