      cannot use "Network Path" in Container of OSX FM Pro 13 Advanced

      Post

      OSX 10.10

      FileMaker Pro Advanced 13

      Cannot use the Network Path in the Container field and "Manage Containers", even following the syntax, it doesn't work and can't find or write to it.

      But if using Windows 7+FM Pro Advanced 13, it works fine.

      In Mac, I can use [database location]/share/, /Volumes/share/ but not Network Path.

      Problem is I change the platform from Windows to Mac, and use a lot of network path in the database to store the pdf in the different network drive, and no need to mount the network drive first.

      And in OSX, need to mount all the network drive as Volumes before start the FM Pro+DB, which show a lot of mounted volumes on desktop.

      Will Filemaker change the behavior to make it consistence as Windows? 

      FM Pro is a good product for cross platform that I hope it can do it.

      Many thanks.
