When selecting a layout through the Status Toolbar or from the View Menu (Go To Layout Submenu) FileMaker Pro will always jump to the very last layout in the file when the following 2 conditions are met
- more than 255 layouts in the file
- you try to go to layout 255 or above

This is an issue in FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced and FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced.
This does not happen on Mac platform.
This does not happen on Go.
This does not happen on WebDirect.
This is not a problem when entering the layout number into the Status Toolber.
This is not a problem when choosing a layout in a script step or in the File Options.

Click duplicate Layout until you have 256 layouts
In the layout selector in Status Toolbar scroll down and choose layout 255
