Non-Printing object blocks sliding
MacOS-X 10.7.3, Windows 7 Pro
A layout which has a lot of sliding fields (reduce enclosing part), some of which are "All Above", some are "Only Directly Above" and some are "Sliding Left". There was a block of non-printing text to the right of the printable area with a notation viewable in "Browse Mode". This layout would properly slide with FileMaker 11 and below but in FileMaker 12 the sliding would not work. It was discovered that the static non-printing text block was blocking the sliding. Turning "Sliding On" for the non-printing text block solved the problem but should not be necessary.
Create a layout of sliding fields. Put a non-printing text box midway in the layout to the right of the printable area and DO NOT mark the non-printing text as "sliding".
The non-printing text should not inhibit sliding since it is not being printed.
It inhibits sliding unless sliding is also added to the non-printing object.
Happens on both platforms.
Set the static text to sliding.
Hello John Duncan:
Thank you for posting.
I apologize about the delay in response. I am having some trouble replicating this behavior. Although it may not fix your issue could you please update to FileMaker 12 v2 and follow up if you are still experiencing this behavior.
