I've done some more testing and here's what I can say:
When I print the layout directly from filemaker, the grey lines don't appear, but if I save as pdf and then print it, the grey lines are printed as well. I seems that when you save as pdf, the object blank borders are considered as a thin line.
This is really annoying, as I have a lot of documents in my filemaker solutions that have to be saved as pdf and sent by mail, and they now look really ugly as pdf.
On mac it looks good in the preview application, but if you send it to someone who then opens it in adobe reader, the lines appear and it will look ugly.
Anything I could do to solve this? I'm starting to get desperate and losing a lot of time trying to fix my layouts...
Thank you for your post.
Our Development and Testing teams are aware of this issue. Interestingly, if you open the resulting PDF file in Preview and not Adobe Reader, it renders properly.
I have attached your post to the original report. When more information becomes available, I will let you know.
Still an issue with FileMaker 12v2
I was hoping for 12v2 to fix this... but it's still not working.
I've just tried it with 12.0v3, and it seems to be ok now.
Yep. If you check the release notes on the download page, you'll find that the v3 update specifically addresses this issue. I've also updated the Known Bug List to document the fact that this issue is now closed along with a number of other bugs fixed by the v3 update and also, sigh, a new bug introduced by the v3 update.
