Text overwrites field borders and scrollbars


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker Pro Advanced 14

Operating system version

Windows 7 64-bit sp1

Description of the issue

The bug that I reported concerning a problem with FileMaker 12 has resurfaced again, in version 14. I remember that it took quite a while to get this into the hands of one of your programmers and that I had to go through you to get it to him.

The problem occurs in text fields, especially with scroll boxes. The field value overwrites the border of the field. If you activate the scroll bars and scroll up or down, the text furthest to the right becomes covered by the scroll bars and border. I am attaching two screenshots. Look at the field labeled “Message Preview” on the green tab, labeled “E-mail Boilerplate”.

This issue was remedied with a version 12 update and was not occurring in version 13.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Create a test field.
2. Type text in it.

Expected result

Expect text to remain in the field and not overwrite the borders.

Actual result

Text overwrites borders.
