FMP10 layout palettes
As I pointed out in a previous post, anchoring the Arrange and the Align palettes causes the window to reposition/resize when switching to and from Layout mode. Thus, the only workable option I found was to leave those palettes floating. I resized the palettes to be long and narrow (two buttons wide) and positioned them in the least obstructive place I could find to the right side (on Windows.) The next time I launched FileMaker, I discovered that the palettes do not retain their size on Windows and have reverted to being short and wide and are now barely visible on the screen. It's a minor annoyance to have to resize these each and every time I open FileMaker, but it's an annoyance none the less. I also confirmed that this behavior exists in FMP9A (Windows.)
Thank you for your post.
I can definitely duplicate the problem, and I have forwarded the information to our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) departments so they are made aware of this issue.
