Summary

window won't expand to show field names

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

New Report/Layout. In the Specify Fields step the user can select fields from the table on which the layout is based or from a related table. The next step asks the user to Organize Records by Category. The problem is that the list of Report Fields is narrow. If it contains fields from related tables, then the field names are cut off, unless the name of the related table is very short. (See the attached screenshot) This makes it impossible to select a field from a related table. The window cannot be expanded nor can the Report Field list. This problem also occurs in subsequent steps.
