    Copying and pasting several layout objects produces faulty layouts


      Product and version

      Filemaker Pro Advanced 15


      OS and version

      Windows 10


      Browser and version (for WebDirect only)

      Bug occurs in client only



      Whenever layout objects are copied that consist of several elements (such as popover buttons, slide controls, etc.), Filemaker 15 has a tendency to crash. This in itself is frustrating, but this also leaves behind faulty layout objects that cannot be modified in any way without Filemaker crashing. Recovering the Filemaker database does not repair these objects.



      How to replicate

      Create a popover button or slide control and add many different objects with script triggers etc. to it. Then, copy the parent object. When pasting, Filemaker 15 will often crash. This does not happen with the same layout objects in Filemaker 14 when opening the same database.


      Workaround (if any)

      Copying many objects in one step seems to work better in Filemaker 14.
