Summary

Right-click / control-click functionality disappears when changing layouts in layout mode

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v3

Operating system version

OSX Lion

Description of the issue

I've noticed that when I'm in layout mode, sometimes when I switch layouts and quickly right-click on a field, the right-click functionality is "lost". At that point, right-clicks and control-left-clicks do nothing in layout mode (browse mode is not affected). The effect is not constrained to the window in which this happens.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Enter layout mode.
2. Switch to another layout using the forward/backward buttons in the status bar.
3. Right-click on a field.

Expected result

Normal right-click functionality.

Actual result

Nothing happens.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None.

Configuration information

None.

Workaround

Restart FileMaker...
