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 ?
If it crashes without 2) and 3), did you test "commit record" instead, for example clicking empty space of the layout?
