Format Painter not copying style correctly

Question asked by Smef on Jun 7, 2013

Summary

Format Painter not copying style correctly

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

OSX 10.8.3

Description of the issue

The format painter does not always copy styles correctly from one object to another.  The padding inside a field is often dropped.  It seems like the theme gets corrupted somehow.  New fields are dropped in with the normal style, but using the format painter causes styling problems.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Use the format painter to copy the style of one field to another.

Expected result

The style is copied.

Actual result

Some of the style is copied, but all padding in the field is dropped (even if the style is the same on both fields to begin with).
