      Summary

      Duplicate names for objects contained within popovers that are contained within portals.

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13 and 14

      Operating system version

      OSX Mavericks

      Description of the issue

      I've noticed that copying and pasting a portal can result in duplicate object names on a layout. Specifically, this affects objects that are contained within a popover that is itself contained within a portal row.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      In layout mode:
      1. Add a portal to a layout.
      2. Place a popover button in the portal.
      3. Place a named object on the popover body.
      4. Select the portal.
      5. Duplicate the portal by option-dragging it or copy/paste.

      Expected result

      If the original object was named "myObject", then the instance in the duplicate portal should be named "myObject Copy".

      Actual result

      Both the original and the duplicate object have the same name.

      Workaround

      Of course, we can (and should) rename the duplicate objects appropriately.
