FMPA 10:  Copy/Pasting a repeating field between files Issue

Description of the issue

FileMaker Pro Advanced 10Macbook Core 2 Duo (Intel)OS X 10.5.7 Leopard ------- I have two database files each with a table of the same name, with fields of the same name (I basically copied the table into a second file).   One of the fields is repeating, with 10 or so repetitions.   I have this on a layout in the horizontal format.   If I copy this field object, and paste it into my other file,   the pasted object always changes to a vertical orientation.  The width of the object is the same width of all the horizontal repetitions originally.  And the height is the same also, though because all repetitions are in vertical alignment, it's totally wrong. It's not a terribly big issue because it is not hard to resize the object and change it to horizontal orientation,  but looks like a bug to me.  The field itself resolves correctly because both files have the same table occurrences, layouts names, field names and so forth,  it's just the repeating field orientation that breaks.
