Layout drag does not work
Operating system version
Description of the issue
selected objects (any) in layout mode will move with arrow keys but not with drag. This has been reported erratically by others without duplication at Filemaker, at least that I can see.
However it does happen. I first noticed it, whether related or not, after installing Lion on MacBook Air Late 2010. It happens with FMP Advanced 11.04 and 11.02. The problem persisted with a fresh install of FMP Advance 11.02 on a MacBook Pro running Lion 10.7.3.
It does not occur on either machine with FMP Advanced 10.
On my Macbook Air I tried turning off Universal Access and fiddling with the track pad options, to no avail.
I can drag objects in other programs like Eazydraw.
So it seems not a hardware defect, and related to some interaction of Lion and FMP 11.02-11.04 or some other interfering program on both of my computers. I can't imagine what that would be.
I am suspicious of some intrinsic to FMP 11 that is vulnerable to some edge case.
Steps to reproduce the problem
In layout mode, select and drag an object
the object will move and stay in the new location
the object 'shadow' moves but the object bounces back to origin on release of drag
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
FMP Advanced 11.02, 11.04 on Lion 10.7.3, on MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
Use FMP Advanced 10 instead
