FMPA 16.0.2 Missing "Save A Copy As" file format options in Dialog

FileMaker Pro Advanced 16.0.2

macOS High Sierra 10.13.0 and 10.13.1

iMac 27" (Late 2015) 48GB RAM 4GHz

 

Issue:

In both High Sierra 11.0 GM and 11.1 beta, the File > “Save A Copy As…” Dialog window is missing the save options popup menu allowing user to specify “Save A Copy As; Compacted Copy (smaller); Clone (no records); self-contained copy (single file).” This menu is critical for specifying the save format.

In the initial display of minimized dialog, the critical popup menu is missing.

However, even toggling the down arrow button to expand the dialog’s options fails to reveal the popup menu and worse, causes half the window to appear missing and blank.

 

How to replicate:

select File > “Save A Copy As…” Dialog window

 

Workaround:

Toggling Expand/Minimize ^/v button a second or third time, however finally triggers the popup menu to appear only in the expanded dialog view, while minimizing the dialog causes half the window to continue rendering blank which looks sloppy and unnatural. These critical options should be shown even when minimized. (See Screenshots Fig. 1, 2, 3)
