Description of the issue

If "Delineate fields on current record only" is checked for layout options, this will effect fields in the Trailing Grand Summary Section.

Steps to reproduce the problem

-1. Check off "Delineate fields on current record only"
-2. Add a Trailing Grand Summary Section
-3. If you use the Cool Gray theme, this section should fill dark and the fields should have a white background. Theme doesn't really matter though.
-4. View in Browse Mode, in a list view
-5. Current record selected will be delineated and field boarders and fills will show, however the fields in the trailing grand summary section will not have fills or boarders making them hard to read.

Expected result

Trailing Grand Summary Section should not be effected by "Delineate fields on current record only". Headers and footers are not and TGS should follow.

Actual result

Fields in the Trailing Grand Summary Section have boarders and fills removed. They act like fields in record rows that are not selected.

Workaround

Have to create a box the same size and shape of the field and fill and stroke as you want the fields formatted, then align exactly to field and send to back.
