Product and version FileMaker Pro 14 and 15 (possibly earlier versions too)

OS and version All

Hardware PC / Mac


If a field in a sub-summary part:

  • is the same height as the part
  • has sliding up turned on (for items direcly above or all items above)
  • has "Also resize enclosing" part turned on
  • and has no content

the layout does not preview correctly. In the attached example file, text from the first record is cut off and other records do not display expected

How to replicate

In the attached example file:

1. Press the Off button in the header to remove the subsummary text

2. Press the Preview button

3. Observe incorrect behavior in the print preview

Note that with sub-summary text On, the print preview works correctly


Increase the height of the sub-summary part by 1pt so that the field is 1pt shorter than the part. They layout now prints as expected, but with the unwanted addition of an extra point of space in the sub-summary part
