    FileMaker Pro Advanced 16 - Align button causes object to hide outside portal

      Windows server 2008 64bit.

      FMPA 16 64 bit, no plugins.

       

      When trying to move an object from a portal to outside the portal by using the align button in the inspector or the align command, the object is hidden and also does not change its position in the layout objects inspector. However, if the object is moved manually, it is hidden while moving, but appears when movement is completed. It also updates its position in the layout objects window.

      See screenshots below.

       

      Starting position with objects to align selected. In this case, moving the label from the portal to above the portal by using the align button in the inspector.

       

      After clicking the align button, the label is hidden with a highlighted box around it. If the objects are deselected, the label remains hidden and cannot be selected unless a selection area is drawn around the label, including touching the portal. If the selection area does not touch the portal, the label will not be selected. Also, notice the label object in the Layout Objects window indicates that the label object still resides inside the portal.

       

      If the label object is moved manually, it appears outside the portal and is placed correctly in the Layout Objects window.
