Issue writing to Get(Temporarypath) location

Excuse me if this is a duplicate post.  I am lost in a maze of Filemaker locations.  It appears that there is a regression in Filemaker 17 when it comes to the Get(TemporaryPath) command.  For years it has worked well when creating a PDF for inclusion in an email and then sending the email.  It is the desired location since when you quit the folder is emptied out.  Routines that worked well for 2-4 versions now fail by indicating the folder is not writable.  Timing is terrible. We just purchased 10 new mac minis and then updated to FM 17 and OSX 10.13.6. when this began to be a problem.  Returning to FM 16 the problem disappears without making any changes.  All 10 macs have the same problem.
