Summary

Containers change the color of objects pasted into them

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v4

Operating system version

Mac Lion/Windows 7

Description of the issue

Create layout boxes with the following fills:
RGB: 238/238/238
RGB: 187/187/187
RGB: 28/90/166 (this one has a pretty dramatic difference)

Copy the layout box, paste it into a container field and compare the box and the container. The difference isn't huge, but is very noticable. I've tested it with FMPA 12.0v4 on Mac Lion and Windows 7. I've been testing on a Classic themed layout, white body part, no fill on the container field.

The color picker (not the most accurate tool in the kit) reports the 238 object as 234/234/234 when it's in the container, the 187 object as 173/173/173, and the 29/90/166 as 30/69/149.

If you copy the graphic out of the container and paste it into a layout, it reverts to it's original color.

Steps to reproduce the problem
