This is a peculiar bug which seems to have appeared with a recent Chrome update.
Create a Web Viewer control with the following content:
"data:text/html,<html><body bgcolor=\"#EEEEEE\">HELLO</body></html>" Then view the layout in WebDirect in Chrome. You'll notice it doesn't display anything. Remove the bgcolor and it works as expected. It also works in FileMaker.
There are numerous workarounds but I can't find out how to fix it.
Anyone else experienced this?
We get excited about adding innovation to the FileMaker platform! Today we are showing you how to use machine learning in FileMaker to detect objects, scenes, and images.
This can be useful for FileMaker databases that need to be able to identify objects and characteristics within an image file and report on the findings within the solution.
Joe Martin, Senior Developer and Product Lead at 360Works, is demonstrating the process in the video below. He will be building off of AWS scripts from Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works, from his presentation at the 2018 FileMaker Developer Conference. See Jesse's past presentation and scripts in "Session Materials".

This is a bit of a bizarre one which ate 90 minutes of my morning - so I thought I'd share it in case anyone else encounters it.
One of our FileMaker use cases has an embedded web viewer displaying a Google Sheet (it's a runtime Kiosk app but the same issue applies to FMPro). This worked well and the users could update the spreadsheet (a rota).
However this morning I noticed a strange bluey/grey overlay (see attachment). After quite a bit of digging it seems Adobe Flash is still installed in IE 11 and this was causing some form of issue.
I disabled Flash in Group Policy (gpedit.msc) and the problem went away. There are other ways of disabling it which should also work.
This was on Windows 10. I have now tested it on two machines so it should be fairly easily reproducible.
I assume it's somehow caused by the 2nd October update to the Flash control.
Anyway hope this helps if others have the same issue.
I'm using trying to add an image to a PDF in Scribe, the process works well, however the image I'm using is a PNG with transparency.
The image is stored in FM and the transparency is retained, if I export the field contents, it is retained too.
When the image is added to the PDF, it loses the transparency, and the are replaced with white, which means I can't see what's under it.
Has anyone else had this issue? Is it resolved/resolvable, or is this something where I need to find an alternative solution?
I am viewing a records location through What3Words and the web viewer performs as expected on OS X 10.10.x and 10.11.x but when I put the file on OS X High Sierra the web viewer gives the error, "SSL Error, Unable to create a secure connection to the server". All connections are from the same location. Can anyone assist please
