      Summary

      Selecting multiple items in Layout mode blanks some Position fields in Inspector

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      Windows 7 and Mac OS X

      Description of the issue

      When multiple fields (or other objects) are selected in Layout mode, some of the individual "Position" fields are blanked (e.g. Left, Top, Right, Width, Height, etc.), or Width or Height value shown applies to each individual field / object.

      This makes it impossible to know the position and/or dimensions of a group of related fields / objects.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Switch to Layout mode
      2. Select mutliple fields and/or objects

      Expected result

      Left, Top, Right, Bottom, Width, Height would show non-blank values for the entire group of fields / objects.

      Actual result

      Some of the individual "Position" fields are blanked (e.g. Left, Top, Right, Width, Height, etc.), or Width or Height value shown applies to each individual field / object.
