FileMaker Go Not Redrawing Screen and Truncating Content


FileMaker Go


Go_iPad 13.0.8

Operating system version

iOS 8.1.2

Description of the issue

I'm having an issue with FileMaker Go not redrawing the screen correctly and truncating the content that appears on the screen in the Header and Footer layout parts. This happens at various times but isn't easily reproducable on demand unfortunately. If you look at the screenshot attached you'll see the black navigation bar that should appear all across the width of the screen is only appearing for roughly 25% of the screen. Rotating the device and perform the Refresh Window command do not change this. Only closing and opening the file will make the screen show the correct layout content.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Creating a layout with a Header, Body and Footer layout parts.
2. Set the Header and Footer layout parts to have a fill colour
3. Create/edit records and navigate to different layouts

At some random stage the layout will show a truncated Header and Footer cutting off 75% of the layout objects/content in these layout parts.

Expected result

Layout objects appear as normal.

Actual result

Layout objects are being truncated in the Header and Footer layout parts.
