Summary

Sample Data in Portals

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v1

Operating system version

10.7.3

Description of the issue

Portals are not displaying Sample Data properly. I have Show > Sample Data turned on. The first row should show data while in Layout Mode. However I get FileMaker's dummy data like "Powerful scripts," "Graphic reporting," and even "?" when live data should be displayed. (#1) In Browse Mode it shows correctly. (#2) If I nudge the fields down 1 point then the Sample Data is displayed properly. (#3) Then in Browse Mode the data isn't displayed properly. (#4)

I haven't tested this in a Windows environment yet.

Steps to reproduce the problem

See above.

Expected result

In a portal when Show > Sample Data is turned on I should see live data from my related records.

Actual result

FileMaker's built in dummy data is displayed.
