Unable to drag fields in Layout


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.6.8

Description of the issue

In Edit Layout mode, dragging a field with the mouse just drags a gray representation of the field.  The field snaps back to its original location.  The field can be repositioned via the arrow keys.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a new database.
Add some fields.
Press the Edit Layout button.
Try to reposition a field by dragging with the mouse.

Expected result

The field should snap to a new location.

Actual result

The field cannot be moved.

Configuration information

I installed a fresh copy of FMP 11 from disk.  Updating to v4 made no difference.
Trashing made no difference.
