We have two upgrades waiting for us. One is to upgrade FileMaker 12 to FileMaker 15. The other is to upgrade Mac OS 10.10 or 10.11 to MacOS Sierra 10.12.


We run into the problem of seeing misaligned layout when some mac were upgraded to Sierra 10.12. When I tested on 10.10, it seems okey to open Filemaker 12 database in FileMaker 15 pro, i.e. the fields on the layout are aligned as in FileMaker 12.


Now I have a decision to make.

Should I upgrade to FileMaker 15 first then upgrade to Sierra 10.12 or should I upgrade the OS to Sierra 10.12 first then upgrade FileMaker 12 to 15? Any suggestions on the order are highly appreciated.
