Table Views When Opening Layouts


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7 Enterprise

Description of the issue

A layout is configured to default to Table View and is set to only have "Table View" enabled for Browse and Find mode.

If a different layout is already open in Form View, and you open the Table View layout from the Manage Layouts window; the Table View layout will show in Form View instead.

Expected result

Layouts should open based on the default view information, not the view of the currently open layout

Actual result

Layouts opened after the first use the same view as the first layout


Once the layout opens in the incorrect view, you can click on the table view to switch to the appropriate view.  However, FM attempts to save the current layout before you can switch.
