    Selecting Multiple Objects in Layout Mode Shows No Position Values

      Summary

      Selecting Multiple Objects in Layout Mode Shows No Position Values

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.0v1 Advanced

      Operating system version

      Mac OS 10.7.4

      Description of the issue

      In FileMaker Pro 11, when selecting multiple objects in Layout Mode, the Position Inspector would show the outermost values (e.g. the top most object's value, the total width or height of all selected objects).

      With FileMaker Pro 12, selecting multiple objects in Layout Mode yields a '-' (minus) value for every Position (i.e. Left, Right, Top, Bottom, Width, Height).  I am viewing the objects in PT (point) mode. 

      This makes it difficult to accurately copy/paste and place multiple objects from one layout to another, or to see the objects' total width, height, etc.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      In FileMaker Pro 12:
      1.  Go to Layout Mode
      2.  Select multiple objects
      3.  Open an Inspector & view the Position panel
      4.  Notice that all values read '-'

      In FileMaker Pro 11:
      1.  Do the same steps above (1-3)
      2.  Notice that all values are populated with numerical values

      Expected result

      This feature should work as it does in FileMaker Pro 11.

      Actual result

      This feature does not work as expected.
