Moving fields in form edit mode does not work


FileMaker Pro


11.0v4 trial

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.7

Description of the issue

When I am editing my form I cannot use my mouse to move fields around. I drag the field to where I want it to be, but when I release the mouse the field jumps back to where it was.

Steps to reproduce the problem

So i click and hold the mouse button on the field. When I move the mouse 1 pixel in any direction the field outline turns blue (probably to indicate a proper position). Also there is a horizontal line which seems to be attached to the bottom of the text in the field.
If I move the mouse a couple of more pixels away towards the destination the field becomes ghost gray and the horizontal line disappears. I release the mouse and the ghost image of the field slides back to where the field is.

Expected result

The field should move to the new position

Actual result

Just pops back to where it was

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message(s) occur.

Configuration information

I am using the trial version. Installed it an hour ago.
The issue occurs on my macbook air and my imac.


Selecting the field and using the keyboard arrows works. This workaround is way too tedious.
