    Body and Sub summary part not sliding together

      Summary

      Body and Sub summary part not sliding together

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11 (at least) to 13

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X + Windows

      Description of the issue

      Is it possible to slide multiple objects on a body part and reduce the size of the body part itself, if the according option is checked on the inspector on each object.

      It is also possible doing exactly the same inside of the sub summary parts.

      However, both are not (always ?) working together.

      After hours of tests and misunderstanding, i created an sample file that exactly demonstrate the inconsistency.

      It seem to be a long standing issue. However, i didn't find any mention of a such limitation on the Help.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      STEP 1
      Download and open my example database below.

      STEP 2
      See whats happen with the "Bug" layout in Preview mode.

      STEP 3
      See whats happen with the "Workaround" layout in Preview mode.

      Expected result

      The "Bug" layout should behave as "Workaround" Layout.
      That means body and sub summary parts are both sliding, producing a 1 page print.

      Actual result

      Sub summary parts aren't sliding on the "Bug" layout, so 4 pages are actually produced.

      Workaround

      The workaround is to convert the body part to a sub summary part, based on a unique field sorting.
