  1. I have a PDF that I cannot view in a container field. Interactive Content is checked.

If it needs to be Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, where
  4. My solution for grad student to upload information about their summer internship, including a PDF file from their employer, is not working well this year. Last year, we were on FilemakerServer 13 and I built the student-facing layouts for WebDirect. The staff side of the database was accessed through FilemakerPro 13. The container field does not store its data externally, but rather internally to the db file. This year, we've upgraded to FMS 14, FMP 14, and, of course, the world has gotten wary of PDF files.
