    Layout text objects get LocalCSS color unexpectedly

      Description

       

      On a layout using an imported Theme, SOME styled layout text objects suddenly get LocalCSS (color) just by editing their text content - or even just clicking in their text!

       

      (Seems to be an error in the FileMaker code which decides if the current color is equal to the style color - at least for for SOME colors it seems)

      How to replicate

       

      1. Create a file File A
      2. Create a File File B
      3. Import the Theme Enlightened in to File B (which is created as Enlightened 2
      4. Change the layout to the imported theme "Enlightened 2"
      5. Create a text objects and apply Accent Text 1 => in the Inspector = style + black triangle
      6. Click in the text object, click outside again, =>  in the Inspector = style +red triangle

       

      Styles with black or white text seem to have no problem.

       

      Analyzing the clipboard using fmCheckMate & fmTextDiff (from fmWorkMate.com) shows the following differences before and after clicking in the text field:

      Workaround

       

      Re-apply the style to the text object

       

      -> but for EVERY change to text on the layout = HUGE effort

       

      Thanking you for your feedback!
