      1 Point Border Around Container Fields Prevents Tight Alignment With Non-Container Objects

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12v3

      Operating system version

      OSX 10.8

      Description of the issue

      When placing a Container field with an image in it next to a layout object with fill, it's not possible to line up both at the top edge of the window, without a 1 point gap. Container set to Reduce or Enlarge.

      An example is attached. Note that this image actually shows three elements. from left to right:

      - Container field, Reduce or Enlarge, No Borders
      - Layout Object abutted to match
      - Layout Object aligned correctly to top of screen

      The first two cannot be distinguished. This is by design.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Checked borders vs non-borders, etc. Different Container display settings.

      Expected result

      A container field with Enlarge or Reduce or Enlarge should have its contents extend to the outer edge of the object.

      Actual result

      There is a 1 point void around the container field that does not contain the image in the container, but cannot be moved past the top of the layout.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      n/a

      Configuration information

      Nothing relevant.

      Workaround

      Leave a 1 point gap between the top of the layout and non-container field objects. Live with the fact that it looks bad.
