I have FM 10 advanced running in OSX. I keep running into this problem and can't really figure out what the "rule" is supposed to be. To wit:
When I create a portal, it, and it's fields, are usually too small. So, I widen the fields and the portal widens appropriately. Good. But, at this point the fields are 'behind' / invisible to the portal. So, I drag them off the form. Release. Drag them back and now they are on top of the portal top row where they are supposed to be. I got this 'rule'.
But, typically, even though the fields are totally within the top row, when viewed nothing shows.... grrrr (*&@#(#&#& . No amount of pushing, fudging, adjusting will change it. If I screw arounnd with it long enough it eventually works but the situation begs this question: "What is the FM rule to get the fields to show in the portal?"
