Summary

Text attributes seem wrong for normal state

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v4 (Advanced)

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.8.3 and Windows 7

Description of the issue

In Layout Mode, the text's display for layout objects can be wrong for normal state. For instance, you defined that, only when pressed, your button must have bold text and red solid colored fill, FileMaker will display a bold text with the original grey gradient fill.

Steps to reproduce the problem

STEP 1
Enter on a layout in layout mode

STEP 2
Create a button

STEP 3
On it, define a different text appearance for the state "when pressed" with the inspector

STEP 4
Click outwards the button or on another layout object WITHOUT DEFINING THE OBJECT'S STATE TO NORMAL on the inspector

Expected result

On the inspector, the state activated is automatically "Normal"
On layout, your object have Normal attributes for fill, line and text formatting.

Actual result

On the inspector, the state activated is automatically "Normal"
On layout, your object have Normal attributes for fill, line BUT text formatting is that for pressed state.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Configuration information

See above

Workaround

On the inspector, just after defining the object's special state properties, define the state to Normal, before exit object's focus.
