Text does not "fit" the same when Enlarge Window Contents is selected


FileMaker Pro


FM GO 13.0.4

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

The "fit" of text within a layout text object (and I would guess other "containers" such as fields and buttons) changes when Enlarge Window Contents is selected--resulting in text wrapping to the next line differently.

This really can screw up a layout when the "fit" is tight and the break points where the text wraps need to be consistent in order to produce a "type set" appearance" in a block of text.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Enter enough layout text on a layout so that it wraps to a different line several times. Switch back and forth between having this preferences option selected and note how the text wraps differently.

Expected result

That the text would be larger with this preference selected, but would otherwise display identically.

Actual result

See uploaded screen shot.


Looks like I'll have to carefully review multiple layouts in this project with the preference selected and not selected, then insert some returns where needed to "force" an early line break to get things to look the same or nearly so... (Ugh....)
