I am very frustraded when opening a PDF the entire FileMaker DB crashes.

I see that is a problem especially in MAC OSX, even if FM and MAC are updated last version.


Every time I add or I open a file in PDF from FM, it chrashes. It is not a new problem, and I have seen it in every version of FM, latest too.

As I wrote the problem especially shows with MAC OSX, when the container field shows PDF in interactive mode.

When I need to add many PDF, I do this way:

1) Add one PDF

2) Go back of one record

3) Go ahead one record

4) Add NEW record

5) Add the PDF


If I add one after another, it chrashes again.


I can imagine I am not alone, have you solved using a plugin? There are many about PDF, did you use them for this problem ?
