Product and version: FileMaker Pro Advanced 15.0.1

OS and version: OS X 10.10.5

Hardware: MacBook Pro late 2011

 

Description:

In Layout mode, opening the Button Setup window and closing it without making any changes causes the selected object to become grouped with an empty button.

 

How to replicate:

  • In Layout Mode, select an object, typically a field.
  • Right-click that object and from the context menu select Button Setup. The Button Setup window show up
  • Close that window without making any changes.
  • Note in the inspector that the object is now grouped.

Workaround:

After every inspection or use of the Button Setup definition remember to un-group the effected object.
