    Duplicated object names on objects in popovers in portals



      Duplicated object names on objects in popovers in portals


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      OS 10.9.5

      Description of the issue

      When I duplicate a portal, which contains a popover, which contains a field with an object name, the object name does not properly increment, but rather remains the same, meaning I now have two objects with the exact same name on the same layout.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Place a popover button in a portal.
      2. Place a field in the popover button.
      3. Assign an object name to the field.
      4. Duplicate the portal by either Edit > Duplicate, or Option+Drag. (Note: Copy+Paste behaves as expected.)
      5. Inspect the object name on the field in the popover in the duplicated portal.

      Expected result

      Object name on duplicated field should increment, to create a unique object name.

      Actual result

      Object name is duplicated exactly, thus conflicting with the original object name which still exists.

      Configuration information



      Manually change the object name.
