Placeholder text does not respect padding


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X Yosemite (Current)

Description of the issue

Placeholder text should respect padding associated with the "Normal" style, but it does not.  So, if we have placeholder text like, say, "N/A", that text sits out of alignment with surrounding fields that might align with the field containing the placeholder text.

While I think it is sufficient for placeholder text to respect the "Normal" style's padding, you could optionally allow padding to be set on placeholder text.

Thank you.

Expected result

Placeholder text should respect the padding associated with the "Normal" style.

Actual result

Placeholder text always sits at a padding of Left=0, Top=0, Bottom=0, and Right=0.
