      Summary

      PDFs generated don't print right when bottom line is used on Field Appearance

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.0v1

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.7.3

      Description of the issue

      We use the bottom line from Field Appearance.  On the screen looks okay.  When printed a box appears around the field with the left, top and right lines being faint and the bottom the correct darkness. 

      Regardless of you use Save to Save as a PDF or System Print/Save as a PDF:
      Safari 5.1.5 - Displays with no box but prints with the left, top and right lines being faint and the bottom the correct darkness.
      Also 5 to 10 times as slow to print as Print from Filemaker and Acrobat.
      Acrobat 9.0.0 - Displays the box and prints the box.

      This does not occur with previous releases of FileMaker

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      File/Print
      File/Print/Save as PDF
      File/Save/Save as PDF

      Used bottom only, left only, top only, right only

      Expected result

      No boxes when line is chosen in appearance

      Actual result

      Boxes around fields when line is chosen in appearance

      Workaround

      No success.
