Common Issues with Interactive PDFs
A lot of people wonder why the Insert PDF option is dimmed or greyed out under the Insert menu even when they have a container field selected. The two most common reasons, other than installation issues, are the interactive option is not checked and the container field is in a portal. Start by going to layout mode, click on the container field and display the Inspector. Navigate to the Data tab and scroll to the bottom to see if “Interactive Content” is selected. If the Insert PDF option is still not available, it is likely your container field is in a portal and interactive PDFs are not available for size and performance reasons. Consider inserting the PDF as a file. It can still be opened with your favorite PDF reader using the Export Field Contents step but won’t be interactive inside FileMaker.
