Summary

Sub-Summary option 'allow part to break across page bounderies' displaying incorrectly.

Description of the issue

FileMaker Product(s) involved - FileMaker Pro & Advanced 11, FM Server 11 AdvancedOperating System(s) involved - Windows XP sp3 & Windows 7 clients, Windows Server 2008 sp2Detailed description of the issue - A problem arises with allowing a sub-summary part(s) to ‘allow part to break across page boundaries’.  If this option is turned on, the contents of the part will show in the parts above it (body, header, etc).  This is true whether printing or viewing it in Preview mode.  If the option is turned off, then it displays as expected.  Previewing the same layout in FileMaker 10 works as expected.Exact steps to reproduce the issue - With a report layout that was built originally with FM10, opening it with FM11, creating a found set and sorting as needed for sub summaries.  The report has the following parts -HeaderBodySub Summary (trailing)Another Sub Summary (trailing)Trailing Grand SummaryFooter The information in the sub summaries has to be able to be large enough to invoke a page break.Expected Result - The page break in a sub-summary to display under the body part.Actual Result - The sub-summary part displays over the header & body parts, making reading any text impossible.Exact text of any error message(s) that appeared - noneAny additional configuration information/troubleshooting that is relevant to the issue - screenshots/files available upon request.Any workarounds that you have found - turning off the page break option will display the sub-summary correctly. But this isn't a solution as the previous page will display a large white area where the sub-summary could have gone.
