Viewing PDFs in Interactive Containers - WebDirect - Mobile Browser

From the Filemaker 17 Web Direct Guide


  • PDF files in container fields are not interactive. On iOS devices, container fields display only the first page of the PDF. On Android devices, click links in container fields to view PDFs in new web browser windows. To interact with PDFs in container fields, open the solution in Windows or macOS.


I was hoping this would have been resolved in Filemaker 17 release. It appears that Android users now have an option but this remains impossible with an iOS. As another option I have tried to script the exporting of the field's content but this doesn't work either.


Does anyone have a solution/work around that will permit this?


Thanks Martin
