Summary

Objects outside layout width are visible in Browse mode

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.04

Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

User drags window border to make it larger. For a second, before the screen refreshes, the user can see objects that have been placed in the gray pasteboard area to the right of the layout's fixed width.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Make a layout that is let's say 888 pixels wide.
Place some text or other objects to the right of 888. I.e., outside the layout.
In Browse mode, make the window smaller than 888.
Now drag the right edge of the window so that it's larger than 888.

Expected result

YOU SHOULD NEVER SEE OBJECTS THAT ARE OUTSIDE THE WIDTH OF THE LAYOUT.

I know that this is not the case in IWP, but I'm not talking about IWP, I'm talking about FileMaker Pro.

Actual result

User sees notes and developer fields they are not supposed to see.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

N/A.

Configuration information

Complex layout, objects anchored to left and right, working over a WAN.
