Save as PDF Crash with Multiple Pages

Question asked by Nina_9ah on Oct 16, 2015

Version: FileMaker 13 Pro or Advanced

 

System: Windows 7 Professional, i7 3.4GHz, 32GB RAM, 64-bit

 

Problem: FileMaker repeatedly results in a program not responding error and a crash when using the Save As PDF function in a script or manually when creating a PDF that has more than a few pages.

 

Replicate: I can consistently get the crash when using a found set of 50+ records that would result in a summarized print of 40+ pages. The layout has 3 parts, a summary, body and a trailing grand summary but removing items (i.e. portals or parts) does not prevent the crash. I experience this on multiple computers in either version (Pro/Advanced).

 

Workaround: The only workaround I found is to use a Print to PDF driver instead of the native Save As PDF but that does not provide the variable naming and structure we need to create these PDFs within a batch.
