               Thank you for your post.

               Fields formatted as either checkboxes or radio buttons are always formatted for left horizontal alignment and top vertical alignment.  This has always occurred for all versions of FileMaker Pro.  With that said, I could not find this information in our documentation, so I have sent a message to our Documentation department to include this in future documentation, and I have also sent this information to our Testing and Documentation departments as both a Feature Request to implement this in a future release, and as an issue to make sure the Alignment icons are grayed out so that it cannot be changed.  When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.

               I also recommend that you enter this suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:

          http://www.filemaker.com/company/contact/feature_request.html

               The entries into this web form are monitored and read by Development and Product Management.  Each entry is read, discussed and considered for possible implementation in a future release.
