sing your finger to slide down the layout does not work. However, it does work in portal rows and the pinch gesture to enlarge or shrink works as well.


How to replicate

Create a really long layout

add some fields and a portal or two for a good measure

Use touch interface - window scrolling does not work

Workaround (if any)

I have yet to find one.

FileMaker Pro 13.0.9

The inverse of the above is true. You can scroll the layout, but not the portals.
