Filemaker objects loose their styling on their own


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX Mavericks and Windows 7

Description of the issue

When going into layout mode and making an adjustment even as simple as copying the attributes of a field object all the of the objects on that layout revert to a different style. Not all the styling was lost but on this layout all portal fields and buttons lost 100% of their theming.  I had to go and reapply all the thumbing back to the objects.  This has happened 4 times in separate database on separate hosted clients.  Filemaker 13 seem unstable.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Cannot reproduce every time

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error messages, just layout changes in an instant while still in layout mode.

Configuration information

Defaults on client and server


Re do all your thumbing work and pray the layout does not change again.
