Severe bugs in table view draw


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.8, 10.7 and Windows 7

Description of the issue

We converted several fmp11 solutions to fmp12 and get severe and reproducable optical bugs in table view. The alternate color isn´t shown at all, groupings are at the wrong positions and the footer is grey instead of the given color. This happens when entering the layout from somewhere is. It happens on Mac OS X 10.6.8 and on Windows 7.

Resetting the view with the context menu gives the correct appearance. Also going to layout mode and returning to browse mode restores the correct look. And finally right click right of the last table column brings back the normal look.

It happens in the sample files too - I could send you the result
