Preview/Print/PDF do not include background image


FileMaker Pro


12 Trial

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Background picture added to a layout displays in browse mode but not in preview mode or when printed (except in the Header section).  This works perfectly in FMP11 but not in FMP12.  This is a serious flaw for my use.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a layout (report).  Add picture (import) and push to background.  Save layout and exit layout.  Go to preview mode (or print or export to PDF).

Expected result

Background picture should appear under layout elements, including where Fill = none.

Actual result

Preview/Print/PDF report have blank/white background except in the Header.  In the header (and only in the header) the background image does show, as it should.
