      can't get tab field to also be container

      Post

           I can't get a tabbed field to also be a container in FMP12. Clicking on it in layout just brings up the "tab box." Followed instructions for creating a container after clicking on field and it remains only a tab. When trying to put in a .jpg a message reads "The translator for this file format could not be found or could not be initiated."

           Thank you.

               A field cannot be a tab control and a tab control cannot be a field. So your description here is a bit confusing. What is a "tab box"?

               How do you "try to put in a jpg"? Are you pasting from the clipboard? Doing a Drag and Drop or selecting an Insert option from the insert menu?

               And is the field optimized for interactive content?

               A screen shot of your layout, captured while the layout is in layout mode, may be helpful.
