Doesn't happen in windows according to a quick test I just made...
It looks like one of the objects needs ot be a field, and that field needs to originally be at a "smaller vertical height" than what FileMaker would have chosen as the default height for that field, given its font & font size.
Upon increasing the width of the 2 objects, FileMaker 12 automatically adjusts the field to what it THINKS its height should be, given its font & font size.
As if that wasn't bad enough, FileMaker 12 then goes ahead and increases the height of the OTHER object as well.
So FileMaker 12 is changing the height of 2 OBJECTS! Ridiculous.
Thank you for posting.
I was able to replicate this behavior. I also noticed that holding the option key amplified it. I have forwarded your post along with my findings to Development and Testing.
OK, just tried the same tests with one field smaller than the default size and not only was able to replicate this in windows, but got some additional freakishly wrong behavior
I sized a 17 pt high field formatted with 12 pt arial to be 15 pts tall. Shift clicked to select it and another filed also 17 pts in height, but located 343 pts higher on the layout. When I selected the middle right resize handle and dragged to the right, BOTH fields increased in height, the lower back to 17 points and the upper to 19.267. PLUS, the lower field changed postion vertically to be a little over 47 points lower on the screen. This put the lower field below the lower boundary of my layout (Layout has one part, the body). No error message, no offer to resize the layout. I had to hold down the alt key and drag the part boundary layout to see this part.
This happens with both converted from .fp7 and newly created in .fmp12 files.
Thus, I am getting a size change to both fields and the lower field is changing position as well.
Yes, this happens to me too!! This happens on the Mac as well: Everything you described, along with it putting the lower field UNDERNEATH the lower boundary of the layout itself.
Is this happening on layouts with FM12 Themes or Classic theme? Does the theme used make any difference?
I tested this on both the classic and the default themes and saw the same behavior in both.
Regrettably, 12.2 still has this bug in windows.
