    Font issue on buttons



      Font issue on buttons


      FileMaker Pro


      FileMaker Advanced 11.2

      Operating system version

      Windows 7

      Description of the issue

      When I create a button and type text into it say "Done", and view the button on mac and windows, the text is in the center of the button but below center when viewed on Windows. I am using Arial.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a button. Add text to the button, make sure the text is formatted to be center/center. View button on both Mac and Windows. On windows the text will be below center.

      Expected result

      Text placement on button should be same for both platforms.

          Windows systems take more space vertically and horizontally to display the same text than does a Mac system. Enter layout mode, select the layout text tool and click into the button text to make sure there are no invisible characters such as the space character causing the text to wrap to a second line on Windows when there is sufficient space on Mac to not have the "wrap".

          You might also try making the button just a few pixels wider to see if that makes any difference when viewed on the Windows system.
