Sorry, I should have added:
I have FM Pro Advanced 188.8.131.52 running on a MacBook Pro (OS 10.11.16), none of which is actually relevant since the problem in question has occurred on all my different Macs running FM for at least 8 years.
To replicate the problem:
in any field, enter the string
where X is one of the characters I mentioned in my previous post and a* is an uninterrupted sequence of ordinary letters without spaces. Adjust the spacing of the column in a table view (or the width of the field in a form view) such that X is forced to appear at line end.
You will see the problem. A line break will automatically appear, incorrectly, to the right of X (or, inversely, to the left of one of the “right parenthesis-like” counterparts to X).
There is no work-around that I know of.
Thank you for your posts.
