Steps to reproduce the problem

I have a portal which is set to slide up and resize. The portal is sorted and filtered, there is no scroll bar and it shows 25 rows. Whenever I make a text field a button in this portal, it shows up fine in browse mode, however in preview mode the text does not appear. If I remove the button option, the text reappears.

Expected result

All fields show up in preview mode

Actual result

Any field which is also a button shows up blank

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Workaround

Having two separate layouts for browse and preview modes, with a script that switches between them when the layout mode is changed. The browse mode layout has the buttons and the preview mode layout does not.
