Can't import visible PDFs from Windows
Hi. I have a client who works on Windows with 9.0v3. I made her a system that uses a container field. I'm on a Mac. When I upload a PDF, she can see it in the container field. When she uploads one, using the Insert File command under the Insert menu, all you can see in the container field is the icon. I even had her download my PDF, using "Export File Contents" under the Edit menu, and reinsert it into another record, and it still only displays an icon when she does it.
Why can't Windows insert PDFs that can be viewed in Filemaker? Is there anything we can do to remedy this situation? She's using XP Professional version 2002 service pack 2.
Thank you for your post.
It's a limit of the Windows operating system. Windows cannot translate the PDF file to an image, whereas on a Mac, it can and stores the image so Windows users can view it.
