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?
