Product and version FileMaker Pro / Advanced 16

OS and version Mac OS X 10.11.6 / Windows 8

Browser and version N/A

Hardware MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)


Sorting while in preview mode will cause the page navigation buttons to become disabled. Note, this behavior does not occur in FileMaker Pro / Advanced 15.


How to replicate

Enter preview mode, sort found set, buttons will be grayed out.


Workaround (if any)

Option 1: Sort prior to entering preview mode.

Option 2: Click on the records/page slider to go to a different page. When you do this the buttons become active again.
