    Blue help lines appear unnecessarily in layout mode when using SHIFT

      Summary

      Blue help lines appear unnecessarily in layout mode when using SHIFT

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      ALL

      Description of the issue

      Not really a bug, but a request for unnecessary complexity in layout mode.

      When dragging an object in layout mode whilst holding SHIFT to limit the movement to the horizontal (or vertical) axis the blue help-lines appear in *both* axes.

      The help-lines in the vertical (or horizontal) axis (in the direction which we are not moving) are unnecessary and distracting and needn't been shown, so that one can concentrate on the useful blue help-lines.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Place several objects on a layout.
      Drag an object in layout mode whilst holding SHIFT.

      Expected result

      Only blue lines should appear in the direction in which one is dragging.

      Actual result

      Blue lines appear in both axes horizontal and vertical.
