Just ran a quick test using Windows Xp and FMP 12 and can't reproduce what you report here.
I put a portal with no scroll bar on a layout and sized the layout to be just larger than the portal.
Selected all 4 anchors.
WHen I resize the window the number of portal rows increases and decreases as before.
Besides using XP, did I do anything different from your tests?
Hello James Toland:
Thank you for posting.
I am also unable to reproduce on Windows 7 Pro and FileMaker Pro 12. Are your fields or objects inside the portal also set to autosize on all edges? If so, only anchor them to the top.
OK. I think I figured it out. If you put a field in that portal and you autosize all four sides of the field, along with the portal, then it does not work. But if I remove all autosizing from the fields, and only autoresize the portal, then I see that yes it does work. In FMP 11 it seems like we would select all the portal and fields and autosize them all and the rows still increased. So, maybe this is just a training on my part.
Thanks so much for your quick response. I appreciate it.
Sorry.. TSwildcat. I did not see your reply before I sent mine. Yes, you were correct. The fields were throwing it off. Thanks again,
