      Fields not showing up as expected when Files transferred to iPad Mini...

      Post

           I DECIDED TO PUSH A PRODUCT ON THE IPAD MINI, AND EVERYTHING WORKS FINE, SO FAR, EXCEPT THAT THE FIELDS ARE SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN THEY APPEAR WHEN DESIGNED ON THE DESKTOP.

           SO A FIELD THAT FITS WELL WITHIN THE GRAPHIC MARGINS ON MY DESKTOP OR LAPTOP DOES NOT ON THE IPAD MINI.  FOR INSTANCE A FIELD WITH 4 CHECK BOXES, WITH 4 ALIGNED VERTICALLY ON THE LAPTOP, WITH NOW APPEAR WITH THREE VERTICAL AND ONE SLIGHTLY HIDDEN OUT OF VIEW BELOW THE ASSIGNED SIZING OF THE TEXT FIELD.  IS THERE ANY WAY TO FIX THIS SIMPLY, OR DO I HAVE TO GO AND RESIZE EVERY FIELD, A MOST DIFFICULT TASK, AS YOU ARE GIVEN NO CLUE ON THE LAPTOP HOW IT IS GOING TO LOOK ON TH IPAD MINI UNTIL YOU TRANSFER IT TO THE IPAD MINI.  FOR MANY FIELDS AND LAYOUTS THIS IS GOING TO BE A FORMIDABLE TASK.  I WOULD THINK THAT FILEMAKER PRO 12 WOULD HAVE HAD A BETTER LAYOUT VIEW THAT WOULD NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.  

            

           ANY AND ALL HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
