This has been observed on:
- OSX 10.10.5 with FMPA 15.0.4
- OSX 10.11.6 with FMPA 15.0.4
- OSX 10.12.6 with FMP 16.0.2
- Insert picture whose filename contains '*' or ':'. No reference, no external storage.
- Read filename of container with GetAsText(container)
- Compare stored filename with real filename
The file renaming does not happen if stored as reference. I have not tested external storage.
Attached is a minimal demo with 2 scripts importing an image as file and as reference.
