I know drag and drop into container field is possible, how about reverse it?
Then you just have the Field set to not be editable in Inspector. Inspector tab Data
But why I cannot find this option in Data tab of Inspector?
On Find Entry for Browse Mode make sure your Container field is disabled. Then you can not Drag and drop file/images to your field
Thank you Johan, maybe my misunderstanding description of my question, but actually, my question is:
There is a PDF file in my container field, I'd like to drag and drop it to my desktop, how can I do it?
There is no such feature in FileMaker. You can always ask for it at Product Ideas
You need right click on the field then "Export field contents..."
I also can't drop-in on Windows, do you use mac?
With MBS Plugins, we have a way.
MBS Blog - Allow file drag and drop from FileMaker container field to Finder
and the function:
Monkeybread Software - MBS FileMaker Plugin: FM.AllowFileDragDrop
Yes I use Mac
The original question is "any file":
On a Mac, Interesting, just tested on my solution: dragged a photo from container (interactive) to desktop, it works. Drag a pdf from container (interactive) in a portal to desktop gives a one page, 1st page, jpg image. If pdf is in a container (interactive) not in a portal, then cannot be dragged out.
