Summary

Check Box in Vibrant Theme displays text outside of object

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v3

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.9.5

Description of the issue

A Checkbox object is linked to a value list with the single value "1" (without the quotes).  The display of that object on the layout with theme "Vibrant" is resized so that the width of the object is only 1 px wider than the checkbox itself.  In layout mode it looks fine but when viewed in browse mode the "1" appears next to the checkbox even though it is outside of the bounds of the object.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a field, create a value list with the value 1, put the field on a form-view layout in the Vibrant theme.  Resize the bounding box of the check box so that the width is just wider than the checkbox itself.  View the layout in "Browse" mode and the 1 will show in an area outside the bounding box of the object.  The problem only occurs at zoom level 100% or 75% not at enlargements.

Expected result

the 1 should not be visible

Actual result

the 1 is visible

N/A

Workaround

A partial workaround is to change the color of the text box to match the background but in our case it is displayed on a portal with alternating background colors so there is no single color choice that will work.  Another workaround which will work for this example but not for longer text strings is to decrease the left margin and increase the right margin to force the text to slide "behind" the checkbox.
