Interactive PDFs in FileMaker Go | DB Services | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
The problem, however, is that interactive containers aren’t fully supported in FileMaker Go. For example, PDFs only show their first page and to view the full content the user will have to tap on the container field and choose “View” to open up the PDF file in a PDF reader app.

I may do a blog post in the future to explain more detail about what is going on under the hood at some point. This was inspired by Jeroen Aarts demo file Randominator.

Text parsing pops up a lot when migrating data from an old system to a new one, or even when you realize that your data just needs some grooming.
