    Cannot delete Classic Theme



      Cannot delete Classic Theme


      FileMaker Pro


      FMPA(A) 13 / 14

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X

      Description of the issue

      It is impossible to delete the Classic Theme from a file created in FileMaker 12 or earlier, even efter making sure that it is not used on any layout.

      I haven't been able to find this in the documentation - I suspect this is done by design, but it would be nice to have this confirmed/explained, and if it's not officially documented, it should be.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create an empty file using FMP12.
      Change the layout theme to Classic.
      Open the file in FMP13 or FMP14 and change the layout theme to some theme other than Classic.
      Go to Manage Themes and select [Classic] - unlike with other unused themes, the Delete button remains inactive.

      Expected result

      A clean file with only the theme information needed.

      Actual result

      A dirty file with legacy theme information.
