    'Layout Objects' inspector renames parent button-bar when changing child name

    justinc

      Noticed a problem with the new (in FMP 16) 'Layout Objects' inspector.

       

      I have a number of button bars with multiple buttons on them.  If the button-bar is part of a group and I rename the individual button segments, the name of the button bar itself also gets renamed to whatever the last name was I defined.  Annoying behavior.

       

      FMPA 16.02

      OS X 10.11.6

       

      BEFORE:  BBar name = "Details_List 2"

      AFTER renaming segment:  BBar name = "Details_Talent 2"

          Thank you for your post!

           

          I was able to reproduce this issue with FileMaker Pro 16.0.2 on both MacOS and the Windows Operating System. I followed these steps:

          1. Created test.fmp12

          2. Created two Button Bar Objects

          3. Grouped the Button Bar Objects

          4. Opened Layout Object Window and Renamed Individual Segments

          -The Main Button Bar Object Name was changing with the last Segment Name modified

          -This is not the behavior of an ungrouped Button Bar Object

           

          I have sent a report to Testing and Development for further review. I will post back here when I receive a response.
