    Duplicated TOs retain sort info from previous TOs



      Duplicated TOs retain sort info from previous TOs


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.10

      Description of the issue

      If I have two related tables with set sorting parameters, and then duplicate those table occurrences in the relationship graph, when I look at the sorting parameters, it’s referencing the fields from the old TOs rather than the new, duplicated TOs.

      I just tried this in FileMaker 10, and the sorted-on fields get updated to the new, duplicated TOs.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a new database with two tables, “one” and “two”, each with “id” and “sort” fields. Relate one and two together via id fields, then tell the relationship to sort using two::sort.

      Duplicate the table occurrences.

      Check the relationship between “one 2” and “two 2”. You will see that the sort is still referencing two::sort instead of the native two 2::sort.

      Expected result

      The relationship should reference two 2::sort (or just “sort”, because the field is native to the table occurrence).

      Actual result

      The relationship still references the old two::sort, which is no longer related.
