My problem is that a download of a PDF from a Containerfield via Webdirect is not possible anymore, even though it was possible until some week/months ago.


The small pop-up window "Download file" appears. However, when I click on the button with the name of the file, it just greys out and nothing happens. I can only click on "Close", but the file has not been downloaded. I also wrote an Export Script but the download still does not work.


If I try this via the installed application everything works fine and I can download the PDF without problems.


BTW: Is it possible that Containerfields behave differently whether they are part of a portal or not?


Thank you very much,
