Cannot scroll layout while keyboard visible


FileMaker Go



Operating system version

iOS 8.3

Description of the issue

File is opened and a script step hides the  toolbars with the 'Include Edit Record Toolbar' option selected.

Clicking into a text field brings up the keyboard by freezes the layout. You are unable to move the layout up or down, leaving fields in the lower half not visible, even if they are the fields being edited.

Steps to reproduce the problem

• Create a file with a startup script as above.

• Add a field in the lower half of a landscape-oriented iPad sized layout.

• Open the file in FM Go 14 and tap into the field.

Expected result

As the keyboard sweeps up, the layout moves with it, keeping the field visible.

Dragging the layout's background moves it up and down to reveal the rest of the layout.

Actual result

The keyboard sweeps up from the bottom, obscuring the field.

The layout cannot be moved in any way to reveal the field.

Configuration information

The file is local on the iPad, and in Kiosk Mode. Not sure this is necessary, however.


• Revert to FM Go 13


• Don't select the 'Include Edit Record Toolbar' option and risk users using the toolbar to add, delete or change records.
