    Non-Printing object blocks sliding



      Non-Printing object blocks sliding


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      MacOS-X 10.7.3, Windows 7 Pro

      Description of the issue

      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.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      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".

      Expected result

      The non-printing text should not inhibit sliding since it is not being printed.

      Actual result

      It inhibits sliding unless sliding is also added to the non-printing object.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


      Configuration information

      Happens on both platforms.


      Set the static text to sliding.
