FMP Hangs On PDF Creation!

Question asked by fmpdude on Oct 20, 2017

System: Mac OS 10.13

Memory: 16 GB

Free Disk Space: 500 GB

Workaround: Use FMP 14




I have an extremely simple script that changes layouts and does a save as PDF on that changed-to layout. This script has been working perfectly in FMP 14 for years (including again today when FMP kept hanging. Only "Force-Quit" available to get FMP 16 to quit after hanging).


However, in FMP, this Save as PDF script hangs FMP. You never see the "saving pdf" dialog. You just see the spinning color wheel.


I tried rebooting, etc., but only FMP 14 was able to save the PDF as before.


Can you please tell me what I need to do for FMP 16 to work as expected?


Appreciate your response in advance.




(I am not able to send you this FMP12 file, but hopefully you can reproduce this issue. I need to get this working in FMP 16. The layout in question has many graphics - bar charts, pie charts, etc.,, but not much text, and, again, this works perfectly in FMP 14.)
