Title
Sub-summary or trailing grand summary part not shown in preview mode

Product and version
FileMaker Pro 12.0.3, FileMaker Pro 14.0.3

OS and version
Windows 7 Prof, OS X El Capitan 10.11.1

Description

Under certain conditions a sub-summary or trailing grand summary part is not shown in preview mode.


When the following conditions are met:

  1. If a field completely fills its enclosing layout part (i.e. it has the same top + height as the layout part) AND
  2. the option slide up and resize part is checked and
  3. there is a sub summary (or trailing grand summary) following it,
  4. the field value is empty and
  5. this is viewed in preview mode

THEN the **FOLLOWING** summary part disappears - *although it contains data which SHOULD BE shown*.


However, if the field is 1 pt smaller than the enclosing part, the following summary part is displayed normally.


 

The same happens if we have a list view in browse mode and the last record is empty.

 


How to replicate
You can see the effect in our example file.

Workaround

 

No workaround exists without changing the desired layout output. (Shortening the field by 1 pt ruins the printout, because all of the output 1pt parts together cause a undesired page break)
