Summary

The quirky behavior of field and label duplication in layout mode

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

Windows

Description of the issue

The behavior is new in ver 12. When in layout mode, if you click to select the field and/or label, you'll have to really hold your mouse steady or the label and field will be unintentionally duplicated. This is very annoying. I would rather the "duplication by moving" feature be disabled and replaced by right clicking and specifically choosing Duplicate off menu.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Click on a field or label or both. Try to move or align them with other fields by clicking and dragging. Fields or labels that you try to move will be easily duplicated unintentionally.

Expected result

Fields and labels can only be moved with no duplication.
