Dialog box not resizable on Mac when creating a New Layout


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker Advanced v12.0v2

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.7.4

Description of the issue

If I select NEW LAYOUT, the dialog box that opens is not resizable, and neither are the others I encounter as I work my way through the administrative assistant while defining the layout.  This is a major hinderance when specifying SORT fields if they have long names.  Every other dialog box I encounter in FM12 is resizable.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Click the NEW LAYOUT button.

Expected result

Every dialog box in FM12 should be resizable to allow the longer names which occur in designs using Anchor/Buoy techniques.

Actual result

The dialog boxes in NEW LAYOUT do not respond if you try to resize them in the lower-right corner or along the bottom or right sides of the dialog box.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message occurs.

Configuration information



There are no workarounds.  Even the pop-up ToolTip cuts off at the right side of the dialog box so I can't even see the long names using that method.
