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

      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
