    FM16 Sort While In Preview Mode Disables Page Navigation Buttons

    jaysayers

      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)

      Description

      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.

          Thank you for your post!

           

          Testing and Development is aware of this issue. It seems it can happen as far back as FileMaker Pro 12, though I reproduced the same information you mention. This occurred for me in FileMaker Pro 16, but the navigation buttons were available in FileMaker Pro 15 on both MacOS and the Windows Operating System. I will forward this information to Testing and Development for feedback. When further information is available, I will post back here.
