Please see  Re: Copy and paste rotated objects not working for the origin of this issue, and for my argument why it should be considered an issue!




It is possible to copy and paste filemaker layout objects into container fields. In the past these objects were rendered correctly, for example: in FM11 it worked (layout objects left and container content right are identical):

However, in fmp12 files (all versions) any rotated layout objects in the container field are ignored and not rendered (see image below).

This functionality is important for rapid application development!


The problem is in the Copy action, which does not render rotated objects into the JPEG+TIFF clipboard flavors. (See comment below)


Please consider fixing this.


Thank you, and happy rapid development!
