Can anyone point me to resources or methods for annotating PDFs in FileMaker go on the iPad?
Go Draw does not support PDFs. I’d like to draw on a pdf and then save it in a container. I assume I have to do this outside fm go and then bring it back into the container.
What technique requires the fewest steps?

I have a field named "Databases" with the following values: "CORD", "SDHS", "Y Ballet". This field is displayed as a checkbox set. I recently learned that "CORD" should have been "DSA", so I naively changed "CORD" to "DSA" in the value list but then none of the records that were checked for "CORD" were checked for "DSA", which reminded me that the values in the value list are the values of the field Databases and not labels for checkboxes. I revised the value list to again include "CORD" and its checkbox is again checked for all the records for which it was originally checked.
I wrote a script, shown in one of the attachments, to insert "DSA" into the Databases field for each of the records that contains "CORD" in that field. When I run the script I get an error message saying "Databases" is defined to contain only specific values, and that I must enter a valid value. How can DSA not be a valid value when it is included in the value list for the field? How can I accomplish what I want to do?
Does programming scripts in FileMaker ever get easier? I don't write many scripts, but when I do I find it surprisingly difficult to accomplish what I think would be the simplest of tasks.
Thanks in advance for your help,

I am trying to scroll to the active record in List view.
It works perfectly in Pro (19).
I am running the script from Go (iPhone) using the FileMaker Network (lightning cable to my Mac)
I cannot get it to work in Go. It goes to the right record and field because I can manually scroll to it, but the script won't do it.
Here is the simple script:
Go to Field [Select/Perform; Person::FirstName]
Scroll Window [To Selection]
It doesn't budge in Go.
I have used a dialog window/Data Viewer to confirm I'm actually in the right field and on the right record, but Go will not scroll to it.
I have tried every imaginable combination of Pause/Refresh Window/Scroll Home/Scroll End, etc.
Nothing in the docs indicate it should work differently between Pro/Go.
Anyone have any ideas?
I have a shopping list app for personal use. On the MacBook it works fine. I have a global search field which searches through the list of existing items. I have a script trigger (On Object Modify) on the field which allows a 'type ahead' search when each letter is entered. On the phone in FileMaker Go, the keyboard drops off the screen and then reappears when I type each letter. Pretty disconcerting to use. Is there anyway to stop this please?? I have attached the script I use for the type ahead. Thanks.
We have a Filemaker Go on iPads and there is a layout with portal rows, when scrolling through it hesitates and you must wait to scroll down. We have offline files on the iPad, although it happens when we connect to the Filemaker server as well.
