Does anybody know why the dropdown list of the object state on the appearance section of the inspector gets too high? I can't see the other object state to choose from because of this.
It may more of a windows issue than Filemaker. But, sometimes changing zoom to show more will let you see what you need. I have also run into the same problem using web browsers.
This helps. Changing the zoom level of the layout solves the problem. Thank you.
still the same in May 2017. My computer runs on Windows 10 15063.296, FMP 16.01 (same issue wit FMPA 16 preview).
greatgrey suggested that it could be a Windows issue: I get the same result in FMPA 15... but FMPA 14 works fine.
TSPigeon, was that issue ever been scrutinized by Development ? It's kind of annoying: when the inspector is on the second monitor, configured to be over my main monitor, then the dropdown list takes both monitors height .
I tried again today to get the issue, but realized that I can't get it all the time. This time I got it in V 14, and not V 16. Testing a little bit, I finally got it in V 16. The thing is:
It's hard to tell if it's an issue with FMP/FMPA. That could be an issue with Windows or the video card.
This is not an easy one, unfortunately.
Strangely, this thread doesn't show in the Discussions list .
I don't see that a report of this made it to Testing and Development. I am unable to reproduce this issue With FileMaker Pro 14, 15, or 16 with a 100%, 150%, 200%, or 300% Layout Zoom with Windows 7 Professional. Could you confirm the following:
Windows Zoom/DPI (Custom Sizing):
Does this seem to only happen with the Object State Drop-Down?
I look forward to your response!
I was also able to find this under Discussions Content by sorting Newest Activity First.
yes it seems to happen only for Object Drop-Down, but it on and of, not a full time bug. I always work at 100% zoom.
