Hello friend ,
I have an issue I could not insert pdf file in file| container field. Insert pdf is showing in non enable mode.
Please play a little with the dimension of container or choose another type of media for testing purposes.
The question mark inside its always in filemaker by range/size problems.
Only an idea.
Thanks for your reply,
Just have download FM 15 and this issue has been raised before in FM 14 this solution was working well. Yet I have observe that insert pdf option is in un enable mode in each solution in container file field.
This may just be an issue with a specific field instance. Try adding a brand new instance of the field to the layout and see if the same behaviour persists. If this instance behaves as expected, then you can delete the problem field instance and use the new one.
Yes I have made all permutations before put issue in discussion. I have delete the field also and make new container field . Even the same thing in starter solutions container field also. Here is pic of starter solution field container.
please try to load the pdf-file with a script. Same behavior?
Do you have a PDF Reader installed? Had that happen on windows 7. Sounds silly, but just wanted to check.
That indeed can be the problem. I've had that issue as well on Windows, but was resolved once the reader was installed.
I have tried with adobe acrobat as well as with as foxit reader also. Using windows 10 and the same issue on windows default pdf. Even though I have made FM 15 trial setup on another pc also the same issue.
have you already load the pdf via script into that container?
I expect, that you have also put other types of media files into. What is the behavior?
In windows 8 & 10 can you verify that the default PDF reader isn’t the APP that comes preinstalled? That app has been the bane of my existence. We have to save as PDF and then print the pdf for our tickets to work right with the Bluetooth printer. If it uses the windows APP it screws up every time.
Though I am using adobe acrobat and I set it as default pdf. My issue is only that insert pdf option is in un enable mode. This option untenable only after installing FM 15 . I have work this in FM 14 working fine .
We have installed FM Pro advanced 15 installed on multiple PC's with windows 10 and use Adobe Acrobat DC.
All installed on 64 bit and that works perfect,
Maybe you can try that combination also.
Thanks to all of you of your opinions but I think so this thing might be happening on FM Pro 15 Advanced trial Subscription. Because the same application I run with FM !4 on the same machine then there is no any issue . The insert Pdf is in enable mode.
Here is pics of both version On the same machine with same windows version
FM Pro Advanced Trial 15
FM Pro Advanced !4
There is no such product as FileMaker Pro Advanced Trial (14 or 15).
Hello friends sorry it was FM pro trial not FileMaker Pro Advanced.
Your FM14 looks like using Foxit J-Reader, not Adobe.
Check enabled add-on in internet option (IE).
