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

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

Expected result

Actual result

Boxes around fields when line is chosen in appearance
