Cannot Insert PDF into container field if PDF was created by Filemaker

I have a script which Saves records as a PDF. I want to insert that PDF into a container field, but when I choose insert PDF, all the PDFs that were created by filemaker are "greyed out" and unavailable to select. I can successfully insert and view other PDFs. Can anyone help me?


I am on a MAC Yosemite 10.10.5 and Filemaker Pro 13.

I have the most recent Adobe Acrobat DC 2015 version.


I deleted 2 adobe plug-ins, because I read those could be problems, but this did not help the Filemaker created PDFs.


In the script step to Save As PDF, I have tried setting compatibility 7 and later, and 5 and later. Neither work. No passwords are required.

Selected "Run script with full access privileges".


Please help!
