Import Field mapping is lost when I select or deselect on Don't Import First Record

Question asked by Malcolm on Oct 17, 2012

Summary

Import Field mapping is lost when I select or deselect on Don't Import First Record

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v2

Operating system version

OSX 10.6.8

Description of the issue

The field mapping is lost each time I select Don't Import First Record.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Select Import Records -> File...
Select a file. I chose a CSV file.
Align the fields in the correct order. I chose "creation order".
Ensure that each one is set to import.
In this case, most fields were not set to import.
I do this by clicking on a field at the top then shift-clicking on a field at the bottom. The dialog displays a small arrow -> between the field names.
Select "Don't Import First Record"

Expected result

I expect my field import settings to remain in place when I select the checkbox.

Actual result

All but the first field I clicked on are deselected for import. The import settings are changed. The first time the arrow changed to two dots. The next time the arrow changed to a double-headed arrow.

Workaround

make the selection for First Row prior to aligning and mapping fields
