Summary

Double-clicking a text label resizes the label to smallest width

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.02 Advanced

Operating system version

10.7.4

Description of the issue

A text label when double-clicked and editable (in Layout Mode) is suddenly resized to the smallest width allowing the full size of the text instead of whatever the developer has specified.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I'm not entirely sure but I am seeing it with a converted solution.

Expected result

Like every other GUI design app, I don't want to have to resize a text label after having done so to begin with.

Actual result

Sometimes, the text label is resized to the smallest width of the text.  I took a video of the issue and it can be seen here:
