Export preview as JPEG — not PDF

I have a large layout with multiple container images in portals, etc. I want to export the layout as a JPEG file. The current script steps:


  1. Enter Preview Mode
  2. Copy [Select]
  3. Enter Browse Mode
  4. Paste [global::container]
  5. Export Field Contents [global::container]



This exports a PDF file. However, if I drag the file out of global::container manually with the mouse, it exports a JPEG file!


I would like to be able to export the JPEG without manually dragging it. I'm not sure what's going on here with the different results. I'm surprised by the container behavior, but maybe I'm forgetting something?


This appears to be the behavior in FMP 15 and 16.
