FileMaker Pro 14 and Save As PDF issues

Product and version FileMaker Pro 14.0.x (.1 and .4 are showing the same issue)

OS and version Windows 7

Browser and version N/A

Description When saving a layout form as a PDF, some pages do not render properly. We use this feature to create a multi page PDF document for order fulfillment. Some pages will have blank spaces where data should be. When opening the file, Acrobat Reader displays an error that says to contact the person who created the document.

 

This only occurs on the Windows version. Using the Mac version works just fine. Also, if I take the same document created on a PC that showed the error, and open it on a Mac with Preview, it looks fine as well with no issues.

How to replicate Not sure, but one of the pages that won't show data is one with graphics on it, but another does not.

Workaround We have had to revert back to FMP 13.
