Popover Button


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OSX 10.10.2

Description of the issue

Popover's fail to open all the way or properly in browse mode, opens fine in layout mode and in the Filemaker Go 13
Not sure of exact problem but has something to do with either the container fields or the items inside of container fields.  Once the "popover" button expands it stops at the intersection of the container field. So it might open a little or a lot depending where the container field is located in respect of your popover button.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Make a new layout
2) Inside of layout place containers fields w/Pics (jpg) and containers with signatures at various sizes (at least thats what I have in my db)
3) Place some "popover" buttons around and test them in layout mode to make sure they open
4) Enter browse mode
5) Fill containers with .jpg's and signatures
6) Test "popover" buttons and see if the react as expected

Expected result

To open fully as they do in layout mode and in Filemaker Go 13

Actual result

Read Description of issue. (see above) ^^^


Had to redesign layout so not really a workaround more of an annoyance!  I hope FM Dev. will fix the issue or someone comes up with some workaround because this workaround will not work in a lot of layouts and cases.  Cheers!
