Here is an example file with an unexpected behavior of the webviewer in FileMaker v16.


Here are the steps to reproduce :

  1. Click the "Export to desktop" button
  2. On the first record the svg file appears
  3. On the second record clicking the svg link in the webviewer the svg file does not appear and you cannot interact with the webviewer anymore (right click)


If you do the exact same steps with FileMaker v15, everything works.


Please find below the software used :

  • MacOS Sierra version 10.12.5
  • FileMaker Pro Advanced
  • FileMaker Pro Advanced
