Hello - If I run my script to insert a PDF from a saved PDF I get an error after the insert picture step saying "can't find the file" - I tried "insert PDF" but the debugger says it is a wrong file type. The data viewer shows - $temppath as 

filemac:/Macintosh HD/var/folders/bd/v_q7j9997d1dph_lz5m1x_mm0000gn/T/S10/Dec 2016-2077 UTAS Retainer.pdf

the Script is as follows;

Set Variable [ $temppath; Value:"filemac:/"&Get(TemporaryPath)&Project»DATA::worksheet filename&".pdf" ]
Save Records as PDF [ File Name: “$temppath”; Current record ]
Go to Field [ worksheet PDFs::PDF ]
[ Select/perform ]
Insert Picture [ “$temppath” ]

Any help would be appreciated. Cheers John

Drop filemac: , it's not needed. You have an extra space before .pdf.

Not sure what context you are in. So, does that Go to Field fail?

Thanks but unfortunately no luck

  1. I had already tried with out filemac (didn't work).
  2. There is no space - just looks that way
  3. And yes I can see the field highlight during the script

What is the error when you step the script?

The file appears to save ok and the error occurs on the insert picture step. (error 100 file is missing).

Just to be sure I changed get(temporarypath) to get(desktop path) but with same error.

So, you see the PDF on the desktop. What if you used Insert File instead of Insert Picture?

Yes PDF is visible and will attach to an email if the check box is selected.

Insert file does work. just not Insert picture or PDF
