Pilemaker Pro 12 (desktop). Lets say an invoice is produced in the traditional way - many to many line items portal plus all the other ingredients. Then

the invoice data entry view gets transformed into a great looking document that one can view in the preview mode. From there the preview can be printed,

exported as a pdf, emailed, etc. But what if you want to creat a pdf and move it directly into a container within the sme FM file/solution. I guess one could

script an action that copies the preview and pastes it into the container. It appears that as soon as it hits the container it turns into a PDF. Are there

better ways to do it?
