Selecting objects in FileMaker 12
Mac OS X 10.6.8
This was not a problem in FileMaker 11, but now this is a gigantic problem in FileMaker 12.
Check out the screenshot below.
It looks like all 4 elements (2 text fields + 2 text labels) are selected, right? Because you can CLEARLY SEE that there are handles in the shape of a box surrounding all 4 elements!!
But no… in actuality, only THREE (3) of those 4 elements are selected. You have to look for the ALMOST INVISIBLE, ALMOST NAKED TO THE HUMAN EYE, BARELY DISCERNABLE, LIGHT BLUE BORDERS that are surrounding the 3 selected elements.
It's moronic design changes like this that has skyrocketed our development time in FileMaker 12 go from a few seconds per change to DOZENS OF MINUTES PER CHANGE.
This is a total atrocity to FileMaker developers worldwide. The engineers at FMI need to go back to the drawing board with FileMaker 12 and start all over again.
Thank you for your post and comments.
