    Custom icons for files no longer shown


      In FMPA 15 / FMP 15, Windows 7 64 bit, the custom icons are no longer available in the Open remote / Open, Hosts tab. Strangely enough, they ARE available on the My Solutions tab. A minor matter, but since we have over 20 Solutions on the server, using whimsical icons for each made it easier to choose the correct one, and improved the user experience.

      For what it's worth, We're still using FMS 13 as a server.

          Thank you for your post.


          Custom file icons were introduced in FileMaker Pro 14.  Therefore, when the file is hosted in FileMaker Server 13, the custom file icon will not appear when viewed with either FileMaker Pro 14 or FileMaker Pro 15.  You will need to move the hosted file to FileMaker Server 14 or later to view the custom file icon from the host.


          Once you open the file hosted with FileMaker Server 13, it will appear with the custom file icon under "My Solutions", but it still won't appear with the custom icon under the FileMaker Server 13 host.
