Copy/Paste Object Style Loses Theme-Specified Field Padding


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.8.2

Description of the issue

Pasting object style from one field to another moves all properties visible in the inspector but frequently zeroes out theme-specified field padding.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start with a layout containing multiple fields created using a theme with field padding such as "Rounded-Desert". I found this problem using the files provided as part of FTS.
2. Change the hover appearance settings for fill or text properties or line properties in one field, the original field.
3. Copy the object style for the newly changed original field
4. Paste the object style to a second field

Expected result

Second field formatting should be identical to original field.

Actual result

Text is flush to the left in the second field -- all cell padding from the theme has been removed and there is no way to restore it because FIELD PADDING ISN'T VISIBLE IN THE INSPECTOR.

All properties visible in the inspector for all 4 states show as being identical between the original field and the second field.
