Text color of tab name


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker Pro Advanced 13.0v5

Operating system version

OSX 10.10.4

Description of the issue

I have 6 tab panels. Three are light in color and 3 are dark. I'd like the dark panels to have white as the text for the tab name and black for the light panels. Instructions on the Web say you can select a tab, hold the shift and double click another panel to select multiple panels. I do this and select bold white for the color. When I go back to browse mode, ALL the tab names are white in the active state. Is it possible to have multiple colors for the tab names?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a tab with 6 panels, 3 with a dark color and 3 with light color. Select the three dark panels by selecting one panel, hold down shift key, click twice on second dark panel. Do the same with the third. Change the text color to white.

Do the same with the light panels, changing the text color to black. Enter Browse Mode. All text panels have black text.

Expected result

Three panels should have black color for tab names and three should have white.

Actual result

All tab names are white.

Changed the tab name color to black and lightened the panels enough so that names were readable.
