An Old link to the old bug reports threads from the previous version of this forum just recently surfaced:
I had just played around with superimposing layout text on top of a container field into which I had inserted a PDF before opting to just edit the PDF directly and discovered, at least for me in Windows, that an interactive container field with an inserted PDF still does not show in Preview mode and thus, presumably when printed/saved as PDF.
That original report was back in FileMaker 12 and shows no follow up post indicating that a subsequent release fixed this issue. Is this still the case that windows systems can't print a PDF when open in an interactive container or in a web viewer?
FileMaker Pro Advanced 220.127.116.11
Adobe Reader DC updated and installed yesterday to be: version 2017.012.20093
Thank you for your post!
I can confirm this is still a known issue with FileMaker Pro on the Windows Operating System. It has been noted as a limitation of the software. I will forward your information to the report for further review. It looks like FileMaker Pro 14 was the last version this issue was really investigated.
