Product and version :  Filemaker Pro Advanced

OS and version : MacOS 10.11.6

Hardware : iMac (27-inch, Late 2013)

Description :


Attached is an example file with no fields and just 1 layout with only 1 label on it.

Go to the layout mode.

Double click on the label to start editing it.

Every time you do this,the label height grows by 5 points.


Normal labels don't have this bug. This behaviour starts as soon as the text is bottom-aligned and there is a padding at the bottom of the label. It grows with the size of the padding.


How to replicate :

- create a label

- set it bottom aligned

- create a padding on the bottom of the label


Workaround : Don't combine alignment and padding at the bottom of a label
