Fields in layout view are not linked to the field definitions

Summary

Fields in layout view are not linked to the field definitions

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.05

Operating system version

OSX 10.10.2

Description of the issue

For a layout, deleting the old fields and then dragging new fields onto the layout, using field picker, results in blank field names.

That is, the field labels appear, in layout mode, but no field names within the fields themselves.

Further, double-clicking on the field shows the field list, but with non selected.

It seems, the field represented in the layout is no longer linked with the field definitions.

That is certainly the case when one then switches to Browse mode.

A screen shot is attached.

The database passes FMP Recovery with flying colors.

I am using FMP Advanced v13.05
