Summary

Placing objects in portals - much harder

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12 v3, v4

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

If a field or a graphic isn't placed way inside the portal now, FileMaker thinks it's outside the portal

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a portal
place a field on the edge of the portal

Expected result

Field is in the portal, like earlier versions of 12

Actual result

the field will not be in the portal

Workaround

Reinstall 12 v1 and do my work in there.  Once the object is placed in the portal, I can then run it in v4 and it is fine.  So annoying, especially with tight layouts!
