In FMP 16 on Mac, I have inserted a fusion field in the upper right corner. It's displayed correctly.
But if I open it in WebDirect, it's wrong.
I have tried resizing to smaller the height, moving it higher but nothing does!
Check the anchor settings for the control in inspector.
FForgot to mention, it is well set to top and left.
In layout mode your fusion field must be on more than one line (due to the name of the field/table occurence).
Try to make the text object to fit on one line (making it wider).
I already have look at this point. The text field is only one line (18 points height).
Ok. How about putting everything in a transparent button bar (with 1 segment) ?
Doesn't do anything better. It just keep getting on the second TAB element instead of the first one.
Did you tried replacing temporarely that field (merge field ?) by a label just to see if the issue will occur ?
I wonder if that could be an issue with merge fields specifically. For the test you could locate the label to the left of the actual field.
Same problem. No matter the type of the object. I also tried to make it smaller and on the position point 1 on top.
No luck yet. I will try to make a small project to reproduce the problem.
ever heard of that ? Thanks.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention planteg.
I was unable to reproduce this issue with a Merge Field or Text Object placed in the top-right with anchor to top and left. I tested this with FileMaker Server 16.0.2's WebDirect -file created in FileMaker Pro 16.0.2. I tested WebDirect in Safari, Chrome, and IE 11.
Can you reproduce this in a New File?
Is this layout using the "Classic Theme" by chance? I know newer versions and especially WebDirect will have issue with the deprecated/removed Classic Theme.
Effectively, it's a issue with WebDirect. I just made a small sample with only a TAB on a layout without any header. Place the TAB on position top of height and add a text right to the TAB's displayed. It will show correctly on FMP but will get dropped down on WebDirect.
Try removing the header in the layout. Or I can send you my small file.
Wonder if this an issue that might be specific to particular themes? If so tsplatypus might not be testing this on a layout using the same theme as Martin.
I'm using default theme starting a brand new solution from scratch.
The image of the sample file led me to reproduce. I had not removed the header in my original file. This does happen in all browsers with WebDirect on FileMaker Server 16.0.2. I will forward this information to Testing an Development for further review. I will post back here once I receive Feedback.
Testing and Development are aware of this current limitation of the software. I will post back here when further information is available.
