Summary

Conditional Formatting prevents fields from sliding up

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0 v2

Operating system version

OS X 10.8.2

Description of the issue

Major bug in FileMaker Pro:

If you have fields in your body part that are set to "slide up based on ALL objects above", they do NOT RESPECT THAT CHOICE if you have conditional formatting applied to the fields' fill color.

If the fields change their fill color based on conditional formatting, the the fields will ONLY SLIDE UP based on OBJECTS DIRECTLY ABOVE.

Even though you told it to slide up based on ALL OBJECTS ABOVE, if there is conditional fill color formatting that changes the color of the fields, the fields will only slide up based on OBJECTS DIRECTLY ABOVE.

See screenshot #1 below in preview mode.
See screenshot #2 below in layout mode.

Please fix ASAP.
