I'm guessing that you skipped a few versions. This behavior change has been the case for a while now. The not always possible work around is to temporarily group the selected objects as you will then see their position data appear in the Inspector.
Thank you very much for taking the time to respond, Phil. Yes, I have been using FileMaker Pro 11, while waiting a few years for the dust to settle and I have been hopeful that FileMaker 14 will be a solid product that I can work with.
Your suggestion is very helpful and will give me the result that I am looking for. I'm sure that you have a million other things on your plate, so I truly appreciate you helping out with your response. I owe you one.
