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.
