Summary

Layout objects should keep their positions when copying/pasting

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12, 11, 10, 9 …

Operating system version

Mac OS X, Windows …

Description of the issue

Layout objects should keep their positions when copying/pasting. Everybody has been complaining about this problem since … forever!!!

Could you have this fixed … like two, three years ago?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Copy some object in a layout, and then paste it back in. Watch it repositioning at "random" coordinates.

Expected result

Pasted with the same layout position as original object(s) – of course. I don't know of any other application that behaves so badly in the year 2013, not even from Microsoft(!).
