      Summary

      Hanging indent bug in FileMaker Pro Advanced 11.0v3

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FileMaker Pro Advanced 11.0v3

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.6.7

      Description of the issue

      Whilst still working for existing fields imported from previous FileMaker versions it is not possible to enter negative indents in the Paragraph formatting inspector to create "hanging indents".

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create text field, invoke inspector, go to second tab "Appearance" and try to set the Indents to {-0.5, 0.5, 0} cm.

      Expected result

      Accept this indent setting to create hanging indents as depicted below:

      sdfkhdkfhjkhfjkhjkhjfsdkjhfhsd kjds kjh dfjk dsjk hk
           kdshfj fjkds fjkh sdfh j hsdfh jkdsh fkjh kjsd
           dskjfhjk kjds jhkfsd jkh

      Actual result

      FileMaker does not accept a negative number for the first-line indent.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Beep.

      Workaround

      It is possible to duplicate a previous field, such as one imported from a previous version of FileMaker which has a negative first-line indent and use that field. Hanging indents do work, it seems that the input check in the inspector is the single problem (not accepting negative numbers). See attached screendump with negative indent imported from a previous version.
