Custom icon (svg file) not added to icon library


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX Yosemite and Win8

Description of the issue

I have designed a custom button icon in SVG format. When I add it to a button using FM14 on Win8, the image is added, and functions as expected (e.g. I can change the fill colour for rollovers via the inspector).
Crucially, the icon is also added to the icon library, and I can easily apply it to other buttons.

However, if I try the same thing on the same file using FM14 on the mac, the image is added and functions as expected, but the image is NOT added to the icon library -- it has to be added separately to each new button.

The custom icons I added in Win8 ARE visible and can be applied to other buttons.

Another issue -- the custom icons in the library displayed on Windows shown as black lines on a plain grey background. On the Mac, these custom icons are shown as BLACK lines on a BLACK background (rather hard to see!)

Steps to reproduce the problem

Try to add a custom SVG icon to a button using a Mac

Expected result

Icon image is retained in the icon library

Actual result

icon is not retained in the icon library
