Maybe I am missing something but I have been paying attention to eMails post FM 16 release and who would want. I have not seen this issue appear.


A Solution has over 1200 layouts many of which have multiple instance’s of “Text” set as a button, see screen grabs.


FileMaker 15 Layout Text manipulation:

  1. Borders are allowed

  2. Gradients are allowed

Filemaker 16 Layout Text manipulation:

  1. Borders are not allowed

  2. Gradients are not allowed


Note: Group is the only drop down available

I would want to ask why this Text “manipulation” is no longer available ?


Or, Please enlighten me
