      Summary

      Duplicating an object in layout mode crashes FileMaker Pro

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FMPA 12v3

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.8.2

      Description of the issue

      Attempting to duplicate an object in layout mode can crash FileMaker Pro.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      • Create a layout with no header or footer, and add a tab control at the bottom of the layout. Lock the tab control.

      • Add a button ('Do Nothing') positioned on the tab control.

      • Select the button by dragging over it without holding down the Cmd key. This also selects the tab control.

      • Select the duplicate command (I used Cmd-D).

      • A warning dialog appears about expanding the size of the layout. Choose 'No'.

      • Click on the tab control to deselect the button.

      • Select the button by dragging over it, this time with the Cmd key down so as not to select the tab control.

      • Select the duplicate command.

      Expected result

      The selected button should be duplicated.

      Actual result

      FileMaker Pro crashes.

      I have a simple file that demonstrates this.

      Workaround

      Select the button without first trying to duplicate the button and the tab control.
