    Is there a problem with PDF's in IWP using FMPv12?

      Hi,

       

      I'm very new to FM so forgive my ignorance.

       

      I remember trying this with a demo of FMPv11. Insert a PDF in a container field, set the layout of the field to "images". View the image of the PDF and download the PDF from IWP.

       

      This doesn't work in FMPv12.

       

      In OS X...

      If I insert a PDF, I can view the image, but only able to download the .jpg thumb in IWP.

      If I insert the PDF as a file, I only see tthe filename and icon, but I can download the PDF.

       

      In Windows

      If I insert a PDF, I cannot view it as an image or pdf, and no download in IWP.

      If I insert the PDF as a file, I only see tthe filename and icon, but I can download the PDF.

       

      All I would like to do is to be able to view a PDF thumb (or interactive) and be able to download the PDF from IWP.

       

      It is an essential function, otherwise what is the point of IWP, if you can only work with text.

       

      Am I missing something? It sounds like a major bug to me. Any help out there?

       

      I even tried to do this with "reference only" with a PDF located in the WEB folder, and still no joy.

       

      Many thanks in advance,

       

      Brian
