Displaying a PDF in a container


     I have built a FileMaker database that displays a PDF file in a container. In the Windows version it works correctly, but I can't get the PDF file to display in the container on the Mac.

     I've used the same database file on both platforms.

     The container is optimized for PDF.

     In Browse mode the container only displays a red Acrobat logo on a black background.

     Interestingly, if I switch the optimization to Images the file displays, but I need the Adobe Reader tools to appear in the container.

     I'm on Mac OS X 10.8.5 and FileMaker 12.0v3. Both Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro and Adobe Reader 11.0.04 are installed.

     Any suggestions would be appreciated.
