    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

      Steps to reproduce the problem
