    Formatting Bar refresh problem

    scottworld

      There is a very minor problem with the formatting bar not refreshing properly (in both FMPA 15 and FMPA 16).

       

      1. Open up a database where the formatting bar is hidden and locked by default. You can do this by making an opening script which has this script step: Show/Hide Toolbars [Lock; Hide]

       

      2. Then, show the toolbars by running a script with this script step:

      Show/Hide Toolbars [Show]

      You'll notice that your Status Bar is showing but not your Formatting Bar. This is okay at the moment.

       

      3. Go into layout mode.

       

      4. Select any object that has a non-default fill color and a non-default line color.

       

      5. Show the formatting bar by choosing View-->Formatting Bar.

       

      6. PROBLEM: The formatting bar does not reflect the fill color and the line color of the currently-selected object. You actually need to click away from the object and then back onto the object in order for the formatting bar to update properly.

       

      This is a problem in both FMPA 15 and FMPA 16.

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Easily reproducible if you just follow steps 4-6.
