PDFs inserted into a container are rotated.

I have a database where I'm using a container to store a PDF image using external storage.

 

While most of the PDFs are fine, a few seem to be rotated 90 degrees from the actual file and I'm not sure why. Then, to make matters worse, if I try to print any of the records with the rotated image, Filemaker crashes.

 

In addition, when browsing records, the container is larger than the size set up in the layout. The image covers some of the other items on the layout.

 

This is on Filemaker 12.0v2 and 12.0v3 on Mac OS X 10.7.5.

 

Filemaker Pro 12.0v3 on OS X 10.6.8 doesn't have the crashing problem, but the image is still rotated.

 

Oh, the database is hosted on FM Server 12 on OS X 10.7.5.

 

Any ideas on what might be going on?

 

Thanks.
