Bug: Creation of readable pdfs with FileMaker Pro (and Advanced) Windows 7.

With FileMaker Pro (and Advanced) 12.0.4 Windows there is a problem, which did not exist with version 12.03:

When I open FMServer_Sample (or any other local or server based database) on my Windows 7 PC switch to page view and create a pdf, there is a pdf created which allows to search or copy text.

After Upgrading to Version 12.0.4 I can not copy any text anymore, the created pdf behaves like a graphic picture and the character layer does not exist anymore.

 

I made the tests also on my Mac with 12.0.4: pdf documents are created as expected.

 

Has anyone made the same expirience?

Does anyone has a fix, except downgrading to version 12.0.3?
