Request to remove or toggle the record indicator on the left side of the List View

Post

     On FileMaker 12, this "Delineate fields on current record only" layout setting is really great. Especially on the List View where it will indicate the currently selected record.

     And this feature made this "selected record indicator" on the left side of the List View kind of redundant on Filemaker Pro, Advanced and even in FMGo. Kind of sucks on FMGo because it nudges the layout a few pixels to the right and affects the overall design especially if you have images that have specific width that cannot be spliced.

     I think the only part where this record indicator is still useful is on Web Publishing, because Web Publishing doesn't support dynamic changes on the layout.

     So, I suggest to have a "toggle" switch that will enable developers to switch it "off" when designing a layout for Desktop and Mobile use and switch "on" when designing a layout for Web Publishing.
