      Summary

      Custom Dialog Text Does Not Display with Variables

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.04

      Operating system version

      OSX 10.8

      Description of the issue

      When using variables along with text in a custom dialog box, if the text has any appreciable length it is cut off and does not display properly.  Resizing the dialog box shows the issue clearly.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      I have a sample file .fmp12 that clearly demonstrates the issue, but it seems I cannot upload it due to its suffix.  I have uploaded a screen shot that show the issue in a static fashion.

      Expected result

      Usable variables and text that can be read

      Actual result

      If there is any appreciable amount of text it cannot be seen, having been cut off

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Configuration information

      none

      Workaround

      don't use custom dialog boxes this way?
