If you rename one of the styles to 'Conflict_Button2' and save Theme, do both reappear?
This reminds me to a "conflict" when having 2 identical items in a value list, the duplicate gets suppressed.
My problem isn't that the duplicate style disappears, on the contrary - it should never have been possible to create the duplicate in the first place, since custom style names need to be unique across a theme (and not even for each given object type, which in itself has it's downsides). So I believe this is actually a bug, and not a question of a feature being designed in a way that you may or may not agree with (as is the case with the fact that value lists can only contain unique items - I'm personally fine with that, even if there are cases where you want duplicates; there are workarounds for those special cases, but that's another topic altogether).
I didn't check recently but in the past, you were able to create Scripts with identical names.
For Field names within a Table, FMP performs a check-for-duplicates.
Maybe FMI will consider to apply same checks for all other name-givings.
Thank you for your posts.
I am unable to replicate the issue. This is what I have done:
1. I created a new database file, "File2.fmp12" with two Text fields. The layout displays both fields.
2. I format the first field for 16 point font, save a new style "a", and save a new theme "TSGal".
3. I format the second field for Text Color blue, and attempt to save a new style "a". I get the following screen:
Are you able to replicate the issue with a new file?
Let me know what other steps I can take to replicate the issue.
Hi TSGal - those steps aren't even close to reproducing what I did, but thanks for trying. I was mostly wondering if this was already a know issue - I'll try to see if I can reproduce this in files created from scratch myself - in that case, I'll be able to give you details on the steps to follow.
