Resizing container items by 85%

I use FM 8.5 to generate proofs for clients. We are printing two size books; one at 100% and one that will be 85%, shot to film at the printer. My problem is this; I have one container field that imports 9 different ad sizes (created to size in Illustrator CS2).

My boss would like to reduce the ad size to appear 15% smaller, so that the client will see the proof at actual size in the smaller directory. Is there a way to make the content of a container appear 15% smaller, no matter the dimensions of the actual file?

It is not obvious why filemaker needs to do the reduction, do you really print out proof from filemaker?

However can you modify referenced via embedded applescripts calling a few shell script commands. If say the native image size to fit container field feature isn't enough?
