To add another layer to this issue - the Insert > Sound option through the Menu Bar is available in FM 12, but that does not seem to be available in FM 13. Is that feature no longer an option?
Yes, it appears to have been unceremoniously removed in FMP13. Annoying. What makes it odd is that it IS present in FMGo13.
The FMP13 help says:
You can play sounds that were recorded in (using versions of FileMaker Pro earlier than version 13). The sound icon is displayed in a container field that contains sound.
That seriously stinks. Why does FMI do these removals so quietly? Do they think that this is the sort of surpirse we enjoy?!?
I was only miffed when they removed the little alignment tool in layout mode ... I used it and I still miss it, but the new alignment tools do most of what I need just as well. But, removing the recording-into-container-fields capability totally destroys something I developed that I'd really rather not lose.
I completely agree... My solution made good use of the record audio feature as well. At first I thought it was due to the overall re-vamp of contaniners, but the fact that you CAN record the mic from iOS devices rules that out. That it IS there in iOS and NOT in desktop is especially weird since the audio data would inherently have to travel over wifi or cell signal, which is more 'expensive' than a workstation on a wired network.
