Summary

Inspector palettes don't remember position.

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FMP11, FMP12A

Operating system version

OS X 10.6.8

Description of the issue

This problem has been around since FMP11 but now that I see the same behavior in FMP12 I thought that I would post the problem.

I have three displays on my computer. When working with FMP I always keep all of the Inspector Palettes open on the display on my right. (see snapshot)

When I open and close FM the position of the "data" inspector palette keeps shifting down. It keeps dropping lower and lower after almost every reboot.

Obliviously it's not a major issue but it would be nice if you could fix this.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open three instances of the inspector palette on a computer with multiple displays. Restart FMP

Expected result

Inspector palettes remember their position after restart.

Actual result

Inspector palettes move after restart.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Configuration information

Computer has three displays.

Workaround

Manually reposition palettes.
