Summary

Hide object hide's other objects on same location

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FMPA 13

Operating system version

Mac OSX 10.10 - Yosemite

Description of the issue

2 Registerelements with alternate HideObject. Second Registerelements get falsely hidden when placed on top of first Registerelement.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Build a duplicate of 1 Registerelement.
Assign formulas to both with formulas on same argument but one with "if = xy" and second with "if≠xy". Depending on the status, we get switched from one element to the other.
This works, as long as the two elements are placed side-by-side.
Placing second Element on same position as first Element (kind of layering objects on each other) let's second Element hide when argument of first Element is given.

Expected result

HideObject working on Element only and not on entire space on layout

Actual result

Enclosed Elements get also affected by the hide condition of layer below

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

none

Workaround

Set a offset of 2 pixels for position of second layer (Element).
Though switching thru records let's Elements jump with every "switch"
