BUG: Converting buttons from .fp7 to .fmp12 will convert into text objects


FileMaker Pro


FMP 12v2

Operating system version

MAC OSX 10.6 and 10.7 (confirmed) but probably not limited to OS

Description of the issue

When converting a .fp7 file to .fmp12 all native Filemaker buttons will convert into text objects instead of button objects.
This bug leads to the buttons, that are now text objects will resize if you try to edit the button label or color.
A major problem if you convert a solution with thousands of buttons....

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a simple .fp7 file in FM11
Draw a couple of native Filemaker buttons.
Convert the file to .fmp12 by opening with FM12
The buttons are now converted into clickable text objects instead of native filemaker buttons, which do no resize if you edit text.

Expected result

A native button that you draw with Filemakers button tool in FM11 should also convert directly to a native button in FM12

Actual result

Native buttons gets converted into text objects when you convert from .fp7 to .fmp12
