FileMaker Product(s) involved:(only tested with) FileMaker Pro 10.0v3 + 11.0v1 Operating System(s) involved:Mac OS 10.5.8 Detailed description of the issue:Using the build-in function LayoutObjectNames will not return anything when the file name includes a dot besides the ".fp7". Exact steps to reproduce the issue:Create a new database with a name that includes a dot, like "test.v1.fp7"Add some layout objects and give them object names, e.g. a tab control with three tabs named "A", "B", "C" and the same object names.Open the data viewer and enter a new expression: "LayoutObjectNames( Get( FileName ); Get( LayoutName ) )"Expected Result:ABC Actual Result:Nothing (an empty string) Exact text of any error message(s) that appeared:N/A Any workarounds that you have found:Removing the dot in the file name or replacing it with an underscore ("test_v1.fp7") will act (just) as a workaround.
