This issue could well be related to a issue reported by A.Kegebein 1 Year ago (still not resolved!). Performance and search-functions of the FMI-Forum still sucks but I've found the report thru a sophisticated Google search ("FM12 - Conditional Format: Font colorsetting NONE" - A.Kegebein ): http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/132fd6054d
@ Fred: You're right √ :-) strange behavior, not very well documented by FMI
OK, Fred's right. Thanks.
I also agree it's a bit strange and for complex solutions and experienced developers also distracting that this feature is on by default as hiding one field (especialyl with dropdown menu) behind another field is still one of the most common layout tricks...
I have two complaints about Delineate:
1) It's the default option
2) It stays in force when the layout is printed/previewed/PDF'd.
The second one often means that I have to create two identical layouts, one for printing and one for browsing if I want to use Delineate and print from the same layout design.
