It was once possible on Windows systems as they set up container fields to support OLE. That has been deprecated. was deprecated several versions ago.
FileMaker's implementation of OLE had some pretty nasty "gotchas"--you couldn't use a script or batch process to export a file from the container if you used "insert object", so deprecating it probably solved some major support headaches even as it removed one particular capability from the product.
I'm sad. Loved that feature. Thanks for letting me know I wasn't going crazy.
