Quick tip - displaying PDF in adobe acrobat.

Sometimes, in FileMaker, after you create a PDF you want to display it on the screen so that the user can save it somewhere or just review it. This is especially true when you have used append to make a PDF containing several parts (and which, therefore, can’t be show using a print preview).

There is a quick tip to doing this:
-Make your PDF in the normal way.
-Import the PDF into a global container
-Export the PDF and with the tick box “Automatically open file” (in Specify Output File) ticked.
