Now what did I do?
I was tweaking a layout that utilizes an alternating fill in the body section.
The alternating fill aspect had been working as expected.
Now the body section no longer displays an alternating fill.
In the Part Definition dialog I have the Alternating Background Fill checkbox checked and an appropriate color selected (Light Blue).
Using the Inspector I have a contrasting color (Medium Blue) set as the fill In the Body section of the layout
Now when I preview the layout the Body displays only as Medium Blue with black text.
I have used the alternating fill in another database without any problem.
I don’t seem to see the difference between the two body sections.
Any ideas what I changed to stop the alternating fill?
Are you in list or form view?
Any layout objects such as fields or tab controls that cover the entire body layout part?
If this is FileMaker 12, did you change the "delineate" option in layout setup?
