      Print pdf directly from container field

      New iPad issue when trying to print a pdf file stored in a container field

      In the past touching the pdf image brought up an Actions  pop-up menu with PRINT as an option.  This allowed me to print the pdf contents of the container field.  Now, the word PRINT is not included in the pop-up menu.

      I can open the pdf in Safari, then print, but prefer not to take so many steps.  How can I set this up to I can print using the Actions pop-up menu?  Maybe I have the Data Formatting for the container field wrong?  Help please..

          "Now, the word PRINT is not included in the pop-up menu."
           
          I tested FileMaker Go 12 and FileMaker Go 13 and neither one includes "Print" in the pop-up menu; however, if I first tap "View", then tap the [] (box with up arrow) in the top right-hand corner, then the print option is available.
           
          If this option does not appear to exist in the current file, then test a new file to eliminate a custom menu created removing the print option.
           
          Please keep me updated with any progress or let me know if I missed a step to reproduce.
