Summary

Buttons create Pre Filemaker 12 are treated as Text Objects in FM 12

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v1 or 12.0v3

Operating system version

OSX Maverick

Description of the issue

Buttons created using the Button tool in Filemaker 11 or earlier when converted to Filemaker 12 are seen Text objects not buttons.  Use of styles properly requires that all buttons be remade as buttons, otherwise the buttons take the theme of text objects.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a file in Filemaker 11 with the button tool.
Save/Close file
Open in Filemaker 12
The object acts like a button but is object type text
To get it to be a button style it must be re-created

Expected result

Buttons created with a button tool in earlier Filemaker would retail that attribute

Actual result

The object acts like a button but is object type text

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Workaround

To get it to be a button style it must be re-created
