    Window size in Layout Mode shrinks horizontally



      Window size in Layout Mode shrinks horizontally


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      OSX 10.6.4

      Description of the issue

      When switching to layout mode the window shrinks horizontally. This presents two problems: the far right of the layout isn't visible and the status bar at the top doesn't include all the options until the window is resized. I've searched the forum for posts on this but found none.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Go to Layout Mode in any layout

      Expected result

      The entire Layout should be visible given the window is large enough to display the layout in Browse Mode.

      Actual result

      Window is slightly less wide.


      Resize the window while in layout mode.

          Thank you for your post.

          Using a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.4 and FileMaker Pro 10.0v3 (and FileMaker Pro 11.0v2), I am unable to replicate the problem.  When I switch from Browse Mode to Layout Mode, the width of the window stays the same, whether I have Status Toolbar and/or Formatting Bar turned on/off.  This appears to behave the same on FileMaker Pro 11.0v2.

          Does this occur for you with a new file?  Using Object Info, what is the size of the window?  What is the overall size?  What screen resolution are you using?  Any other information you can provide to help me replicate the issue would be appreciated.
