Summary

Selection end-dots persist when covered by menu

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

14.0.2

Operating system version

iOS 8.4 (both iPad, iPhone)

Description of the issue

If a piece of text is selected in a field and the FMGo Actions menu is invoked, and that menu covers the text field, the blue dots on the ends of the selection markers (the things you are supposed to drag if changing selections) persist and are displayed on top of the menu panel.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Place a field on a layout so that it will lie under where the menu is expected to lie. On the iDevice, select some text in that field, and invoke the Actions menu by tapping on the folder icon. Observe the dots are still there. See screenshots

Expected result

The dots shouldn't show, they should be "covered".

Actual result

You can see them, confusing (that do those mean?) until you figure out what's up.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Workaround

Ignore it.
