Operating system version

Description of the issue

We often copy and paste objects onto layouts, and we use the Inspector to help us choose the exact precision of where to paste that item. This usually works fine, except when pasting an object into a tab control or a slide control. When doing so, FileMaker doesn't actually place the object INSIDE of the tab control/slide control… it actually places it ON TOP of the tab control/slide control. This is very confusing and unproductive, especially if we don't catch this behavior until later. The only way to get an object into a tab control/slide control is to MANUALLY DRAG IT INTO the tab control/slide control… you cannot paste it. It would be great if we had the ability to paste objects anywhere we wanted to.
