Summary

Repeating fields don't slide

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FileMaker Pro Advanced 12.0v1

Operating system version

Mac OS X  10.7.3

Description of the issue

A repeating field won't slide when set up for sliding in preview mode when setup as a single repetition, except when setup is set to show 1 to 1. In all other single repetition setups it doesn't slide. (When setup to show multiple repetitions, sliding varies depending on which repetitions to show you've chosen in the setup.)

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a normal text field
Create a repeating field with 4 repetitions
Fill the fields, including the 4 repetitions
Create a layout with in the body the two fields, make sure the normal text field is on top and big enough to accomodate normal sliding behaviour.
Set the repeating field to show repetition 2 to 2
Set the repeating to sliding
Enter preview mode
Observe the repeating field not sliding

Expected result

The repeating field slided up

Actual result

The repeating field didn't slide up

Workaround

Use merge fields
