Zoom levels mismatch between FileMaker 12 and 13


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

Opened a FileMaker 12 file with version 13.  The zoom levels that were used were 100 and 150%. Now with 100% is much smaller and the cursor became imprecise - it looks like it is in the middle of the next character.  Also, the 150% magnification goes beyond the borders set with FileMaker 12.

Steps to reproduce the problem

The problem is reproducible every time I open the file (I imagine now converted to version 13?).

Expected result

I expected not to have display changes when upgrading to version 13.  May now require to change the dimensions of all my layouts and the zoom level.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


Configuration information

No changes were made to the software. Only opened with the new version.


Go back to using version 12 - doesn't seem to be any problem when opening the file with version 12. Get a refund from FileMaker on version 13?
