Summary

Dropdown Menus in Status toolbar shows list at bottom of monitor screen

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v2

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.7.4

Description of the issue

I've placed the icons for the "Manage" dropdown menu and the "Saved Finds" drop down menu in the Status Toolbar. When I click on one of them, the dropdown list appears detached from its icon in the FMPro window and is always located in lower left corner of the Main monitor. It's functions Ok, but it's an odd place for it to show up. Possibly 1 in 25 times, it will appear where it belongs coming off the bottom of the "Manage" or "Saved Fields" Icons. See the attached Screenshot.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Customize the Status Toolbar by placing either the "Manage" or "Saved Fields" Icons in it. then, click on one of these icons and the drop down list appears in this odd location.

Expected result

The drop down lists will appear below and to the right of their icons, but clearly attached to their icons.

Actual result

The drop down lists appearing the lower left corner of the monitor and outside the FMPro window. They remain functional, just oddly located. See Screenshot image attached.

Workaround

I haven't found one.
