The graphic engine is not up to par in the new FMGo 14. Objects are misaligned and do not have the right thickness. Portals flicker if substantial data is being browsed reminiscent of the of the old FileMaker Windows version. Here is an FMGo 13 vs FMGo 14 comparison. The file is carefully designed to look great on all platforms but does not render correctly in FMGo 14 (see attachments).

How to replicate

Simply create a number 5 consisting of a basic square drawing with the left side hidden and rounded corners (& two straight lines) as illustrated in the attachments. The red number 5 is newly drawn in FileMaker 14 while the black number 5 was copied from a FileMaker 12 solution. Both render equally crude in FMGo 14.

Both screenshots were taken with an iPad Pro at maximum pinch-to-zoom setting. Notice how the new graphic engine of FMGo 14 is limited in the amount of zoom it can display compared to the superior graphic engine of FMGo 13. More importantly notice how the curved edge of the number 5 is not smooth in FMGo 14 when compared to FMGo 13.
