    Inserting graphics into container causes shrinking

      Summary

      Inserting graphics into container causes shrinking

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FM 13 Advanced

      Operating system version

      Win 7

      Description of the issue

      Apparently when copying or inserting a PNG graphic file into a global container it shrinks it considerably.
      Dragging the same graphic files into the same file in Filemaker 12 worked fine – size remained as it should have been.

      File was originally created in FM12.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a global container field (in my case I used 4 repetitions).
      I dragged and inserted PNG files into the field and the graphics shrunk to about a quarter of the original size.

      Expected result

      Graphics imported 1:1 in size.

      Actual result

      Much smaller graphics.

      Configuration information

      Container field is global, 4 repetitions.

      Workaround

      Used FM 12 to insert the graphics.
