Sliding up shrinks field when resize enclosing part is NOT checked


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS 10.8.5

Description of the issue

When sliding up, the fields seem to be resizing according to their font size even when "Also resize enclosing part" is NOT checked. Changing line spacing from line to pt does not help either. This only seems to be a problem on the Mac when you set the font or change/set the sliding.

This works in Windows 7 and when you adjust or set the font or sliding from Windows 7, it works on the Mac.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Add a few fields on a layout and set Sliding up based on "All objects above" and do NOT click "also resize enclosing part"
2. Adjust these fields with a line boundary and fill and set them ALL to the same height. Align all so they are even.

Expected result

When the object above the fields shrinks, all the fields should move up, but the field size should NOT shrink.

Actual result

The fields shrink according to their font size. This makes all the field boxes uneven per font size when they were all supposed to remain the same height.


All fonts must be the same size to slide up correctly and look good.
