Summary

Resize bug with Labels, Fields and Objects

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

All versions

Operating system version

Windows XP Professional SP2

Description of the issue

Whenever we attempt to change from Bold to plain; whenever we attempt to change from left-align to center; whenever we attempt to change a font size ... objects resize themselves to their smallest dimension.

Steps to reproduce the problem

http://www.4shared.com/video/1XjlVlK2/Resizing_issue.html

Watch the Status, Amount and Invoice# fields to the right as I attempt to simply align, unbold or change font size.

Expected result

I expect the objects to stay the same size

Actual result

YOu can see the result.  It means that every time we change anything, we must select the object and resize and position it again.  It is major PIB.

Workaround

This has been reported repeatedly throughout the past several years.  It is shameful that FMI leaves this kind of behavior in their programs.
