From FileMaker 16 help:
•In FileMaker Go:
•The following options are not supported: appending records to an existing PDF, and options in the Security tab and Initial View tab of the PDF Options dialog box.
I guess I could have written that help note myself
Is this caused by Apple's decision to not allow Java in IOS?
I took another look at help and yes that is noted. Unfortunately it is added at the bottom of the help note with no reference at the top where the feature is described. Adding "See below for things that don't work." might be helpful.
That's one of reasons for the note sections--to note specific platform based differences.
I understand that. My point was that after reading in the upper section what a PDF does, a user, me in particular, might stop reading...
Having learned my lesson I will read the entire note.
