Summary

Line Spacing Different between FM 12 and 13

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.9

Description of the issue

Not sure if this is a product change or bug.  In FM 13, a text block comprised of regular text and merge fields will have much tighter vertical line spacing when PDF'd in 13 than in 12!  In addition, text blocks begin at different vertical locations on the layout depending on the version.

As a result, we cannot have users on different versions, we have to redesign ALL printouts for 13 and we have an unhappy client!

In the example attached, the left side is created from 12 and is correct.  The right side is created from 13.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create layout with text blocks in FM 12.  Print.  Open in 13. Print.

Expected result

Exact same output.

Actual result

Vastly different line spacing.
