      Problems converting certain layouts

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.2 Advanced

      Operating system version

      OSX Lion

      Description of the issue

      After doing a multi-file conversion from 11 to 12, a couple of layouts are quite a mess. One layout in particular has chunks of text pasted into it from a PDF form. The fields, which are not data fields, all show up having borders when none are specified. I have another layout in the same file which is similar in terms of source material and it's perfect. These files have worked in 8,9,10 and 11 without a problem. I reconverted the particular file too. No difference. As well, the conversion log is spotless.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Convert as above.

      Expected result

      Layout should appear as before.

      Actual result

      See above.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      N/A

      Workaround

      Redesign the layout.
