FileMaker 15 SendMail corrupt PDFs

Scripts that used "Save Record as PDF" and then emailed it using "SendMail" are sending corrupted PDFs that cannot be opened.


These scripts worked in FM 12, 13, and 14 sending PDFs in the version 1.4 format.

According the FM 15 Read Me, support for Acrobat 5 and 6 (version 1.4) has now been removed.


Opening the Corrupted PDF in BBEdit shows that the version of the PDF created from FM 15  is 1.6.


But the file cannot be opened by Acrobat Reader, Acrobat Pro, or Apple Preview. They all identify the file as corrupted.

Windows users that were sent the PDFs also cannot open them.
