      Summary

      Group Objects command locks selected objects

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      Advanced 13.0v3

      Operating system version

      Tested with Mac OS X 10.7.5 and 10.9.5; Windows 7 (64-bit)

      Description of the issue

      Circumstances under which, in Layout Mode, issuing the "Group (selected objects)" command locks the selected objects.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      • Select two or more unlocked, ungrouped objects and one or more locked objects, using the marquee tool.
      • Deselect any locked objects by shift-clicking each.
      • Perform the Group command from the Arrange menu or use the Command-R keyboard shortcut to do so.

      Expected result

      The remaining selected objects, as indicated by the blue outline containing them, should become one UNLOCKED group of objects.

      Actual result

      The remaining selected objects, as indicated by the blue outline containing them, become one LOCKED group of objects.

      Configuration information

      No active plug-ins

      Workaround

      • To prevent: Do not use selection marquee initially to select objects.
      • To fix: after the error occurs, immediately perform the Undo Group command and then immediately perform the Group command again (Redo Group does not work). The correct selected objects will be grouped, as desired, but not locked.
