               Haben sie überprüft, ob ein design Element oder ein Feld die falsche Einstellung unter 'Autosizing' hat?

            Das Objekt ist tatsächlich mit Anker links UND rechts definiert. FM Go iPhone verhält sich wie gewünscht. FM Go iPad arretiert nicht am rechten Rand / lässt sich horizontal scrollen. Also jedenfalls anderes Verhalten in iPad als in iPhone

                   Man bekommt auch Probleme, wenn man das iPhone dreht. Das Layout kann anschliessend grösser bleiben und muss manuell verkleinert werden. Das ist alles nicht so ausgereift und man braucht viel Geduld, um ein komplexes Layout erfolgreich auf iOS zu übertragen.

                Ich denke, Zeit und Platz reichen nicht aus, um die zT. vor über einem Jahr rapportierten und noch nicht gelösten Bugs aufzulisten. Ziemlich peinlich, dass FM Go der Apple-Tochter FMI bis heute noch keine Swipe-Gestures im iOS unterstützt!!

                       still not resolved.

                       Probably not acknowledged by FMI!

                           Thank you for the post.

                            

                           "You may want to make a few new layouts tailored to the iPhone or iPad."

                           Additionally, the following article may be of assistance:

                            

                      Designing a layout optimized for FileMaker Go

                      What should I keep in mind when developing a layout to be viewed on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad?

                            

                           The screen-sizes and resolutions of the iPhone and iPad are different: 

                            

                                 Portrait                                                  Landscape

                           Toolbar                    No Toolbar               Toolbar                  No Toolbar

                           iPad                   768W x 929H         768W x 973H          1024W x 673H     1024W x 717H

                           iPhone              320W x 385H          320W x 429H          480W   x 255H     480W   x 289H

                            

                           "In order to test for whether a user has their device in landscape or portrait mode, and to determine how much screen real estate you have available, use Get(WindowContentWidth) and Get(WindowContentHeight). Note that regardless of your zoom level, the values above are what FileMaker Go will report."

                            

                           The above can be found on page 22 of FileMaker Go 1.2.1 Technical Brief.

                            

                           Different computer platforms also run with varying screen-sizes and resolutions, so layouts will also need to be developed to compensate for the computers' screen-sizes and resolutions.

                             TSFalcon:

                             Please read my first report carefully and try to understand the content of the issue:

                             As you can see in the picture for Layout-Mode, the layout is tailored to end on the right side at position 320px.

                             In the same picture you may see that in Browse-Mode the layout does not(!!!) end at 320px. position.

                             I don't know what you wanna call this but in my language this is a bug, crap, insufficient work, ein Fehler, Schrott!

                             Though please accept those facts and have this report forwarded to the FMI Developer Dept.!!!

                               Hi Benjamin,
                                
                               I cannot understand the german part very well but i think following is the key to replicate :
                                
                               
                                    Das Objekt ist tatsächlich mit Anker links UND rechts definiert.
                                
                               When objects have auto sizing defined and are locked on the left AND on the right, if you turn the iPad to horizontal, all the layout will be "extended".
                                
                               Turning horizontal is egal to enlarge the window's size on FMP.  But this fact don't mean that FileMaker Go is showing more than the viewable area defined. I am almost shure that if you put an object on the hidden area on the right, it won't appear anyways.
                                
                               To return to your issue, if you remove the right lock on your both f_farbe fields (header and footer), what is the visual result after ?
                                
                               Bye, Fred

                                 Attd. a example of the FM Go behaviour at all:

                                 1. no content right of Border (outside) = the layout is supposed to end at 320 px horizontally position. x negativ

                                 2. content outside = a test with a object outside of the frame proofs that FM Go doesn't show objects outside the frame.

                                 3. content with overlapp = if even a small part of a object is touching the frame, FM Go will show the entire object.

                                 4. no Anchor right AND bottom = the anchor attribute do not have any effect on the issue

                                   It's a little hard to tell since the pictures are rather small but it looks like you have some objects that are crossing the right border. What happens if you increase the right border by 10 points to ensure that all of the objects are inside the defined space?

                                     Can you also verify if this is related to the header (Kopfbereich) or the footer (Fußbereich) by deleting them and placing everything inside the main section (Datenbereich)?

                                       Also check if there is no hidden object outside of the defined space by selecting all objects and grouping them.

                                         CodeCruncher:

                                    … increase the right border by 10 points to ensure that all of the objects are inside the defined space?

                                    x negativ

                                    deleting them and placing everything inside the main section (Datenbereich)

                                    x negativ

                                    check if there is no hidden object outside of the defined space by selecting all objects and grouping them

                                    x negativ

                                          

                                    … but we might get somewhere: The window is set to Zoom = 200% *). FM Go seem to set displayed width to my 320 px x 200%, disregarding the right frame. An issue that appeares only in horizontally axis but not for vertically area!

                                          

                                    *) we're dealing with 3 different kind of displays currently: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad. I think none of us can afford to build dedicated layouts for each of those devices!
