Product and version (e.g. FileMaker Pro 14.0.3): Filemaker GO 16 and Filemaker Pro 16

OS and version: iOS 11.2.1 on iPad, Windows 10 on Filemaker Pro

Browser and version (for WebDirect only): N/A

Hardware: iPad mini

Description: Our product uses a reverse QR code - white grid on black. I am testing Filemaker Go 16 on an iPad mini and neither camera will recognize it (nor other reverse QR codes I tested). The native iOs camera app outside of Filemaker is able to read the code.

How to replicate: Attempt to scan any reverse QR code (white on black) and the camera never scans the QR code.

Workaround (if any): Buy an external QR code scanner?
