I try to import pdf or jpg modified (markedup with the apple pen) into a container.
But when I import the modified file then in filemaker I always see only the base pdf or jpg and not the annotations.
Of course when I open the file on the Ipad I see the annotations.
I've also tried to copy paste the file but I have the same result. Any idea where I'm wrong ?

I have a solution that requires technicians to have access to PDF Service Manuals on their iPads. After much Googling and looking through various FM forums (including here), it appears that only the first page of a PDF hosted (in a container field) can be displayed and the user cannot scroll pages and read the PDF. So would the best approach be to perhaps have the PDF files loaded onto the iPads and then have FM Go refer to them? It would certainly make file access quicker, but in my experience getting files onto the iPads is a pain in the neck, unless there was some way of installing the files onto the iPad's file system through the FM Go.
Is the best (or only) way to do this through some sort of offline sync tool, or can it be done natively through Filemaker?
If anybody has some ideas I'm all ears. Thankyou.
How to Build FileMaker Web Apps for High Traffic using MySQL Backend and 360Works MirrorSync
Why Sync FileMaker and MySQL?
FileMaker is the best tool for rapid application development, but it is not the most reliable or scalable option for high traffic web sites. MySQL provides that reliability and scalability, but can't compare to FileMaker for development productivity and user friendliness.
360Works MirrorSync bridges this gap, letting you use each tool for its best purpose. Quickly create layouts, scripts, and schema in FileMaker Pro, test and refine them, then use MirrorSync to publish all your record data to MySQL and keep both databases in sync moving forward. You can use industry-standard tools and frameworks (or hire from a vast talent pool) to create highly reliable and scalable web apps.
In the event that FileMaker Server is down or rebooted for any reason (such as software upgrades), your MySQL web app will continue running and serving users. MirrorSync will detect when FileMaker Server comes back online and bring both databases back in sync.
This video, narrated by Junior Perez of 360Works, takes you on a step-by-step walk-through of how to sync between FileMaker Server and MySQL. Junior demonstrates how to start with a completely empty MySQL Server, create the database and tables, and set up an auto-scheduled sync to run every 60 seconds. The process is the same for any other JDBC-compatible database such as SQL Server, Oracle, or PostgreSQL. The license price for syncing one FileMaker Server with any one of these databases is $1,800, with discounts available for educational and non-profit organizations.
If you would like to involve 360Works in configuring your sync, or in creating a web application backed by MySQL, please contact us for consulting and development assistance.

Hi -- a client using a new iPad Pro 2 with iOS 14.4.2 is trying to download a filemaker file from my web-page, but is getting an alert at the bottom of the screen that reads "unsupported file type", and the file doesn't download.
I can't reproduce the problem on my own iPad and haven't have anyone else experience the problem.
Any idea what might be up? Thanks for any suggestions.
