Product and version   FileMaker version 15

OS and version   Macintosh OS-X 10.11.5

Hardware   27" iMac

Description  see below

How to replicate  Use the Save as PDF menu command

Workaround Work in FileMaker 14 until this is fixed.



When I execute a script in FileMaker 15 that has been reliably working in FileMaker 14 and earlier versions, it writes a PDF file to my desktop.  If I then double-click it to open it, I get this Acrobat message.

Using Apple Preview, the result is the same.

Using the Print menu and the OS-X PDF option works fine in FileMaker 15 just like 14.  


However, producing the PDF using the Save as PDF in FileMaker 15 is useless.   Doesn't anybody test these things before the program ships?
