    ERRO - Layout automatic save error when set as manual

      Summary

      ERRO - Layout automatic save error when set as manual

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      OS X

      Description of the issue

      If automatic saving is turned off on a layout, the question to save should occur when leaving the record.  The bug is that is not true.  If you mouse click on any part of the layout other than a tab or an editable field the save command runs.  This is an error as the record has not been left.  Filemaker should allow you to click anywhere on a layout on any tab in the layout and on any object of the layout WITHOUT the save record command running UNTIL you LEAVE the record.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Go to any layout
      Turn automatic save off
      Go to an editable field and change it
      Click on any other part of the layout or a non-editable field and the Save command runs

      Expected result

      No SAVE command

      Actual result

      SAVE command runs

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error

      Workaround

      NONE!  It is an error.
