Background color fill issue


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

We recently upgraded to FM Pro 13 from FM Pro 11.  We are now experiencing an issue with our background fill colors in 13.  In FM11 when we had a sub-summary with columns and filled the section it would not fill all the way across into the next column.  When we use the background fill it no longer stops at the next column like it did in FM11.  Has anyone else experienced this issue?  Please see screenshot for more information.  The top left screenshot is FM11 Layout, top right is FM11 Preview, bottom right is FM13 layout, and bottom right is FM13 Preview.  Thanks for your help.


Steps to reproduce the problem

In layout mode, filling a sub-summary section with a desired color.  Having multiple columns in the layout.

Expected result

The fill color is displayed in the sub-summary area but does not show in the next column.

Actual result

Color is filled all across the page.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error is shown.


We can put a colored box in the area instead of using the fill option but this is a little more tedious.
