It works if the webviewer is set to a smaller size.

How to replicate :

Workaround : not yet found any





I am following the URL below to make use of the webviewer to display PDF report stored in container field per each record.

Everything goes well except Filemaker Go in iPad Pro. It looks like when the webviewer dimension reached certain size on layout, it gets crashed pretty easy. I have tested and can confirm the small size of webviewer for same information did not trigger the error.


It's frustrating as my original plan is to have bigger webviewer to show more details of the pdf file.


I have tried to load image into the webviewer instead and it works fine.


Would there be fixed on this soon? I think this issue is particularly webviewer and iPad pro specific. Could it be the resources allocation issue?


Great if someone can give us clue on this....
