- Product and version: FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.x -> 16.x

- OS and version: Mac Os Sierra 10.12.6

- Hardware: iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017, 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5, 16 Go)

 

- Description:

The "View -> Show -> Sample Datas" menu option, in layout mode, no longer works with merged fields when it used as labels in action button and popover buttons (see screenshots), according to my tests, this problem exists since FileMaker Pro 14.

 

- How to replicate:

Applicate the merged field in the button label, activate "View -> Show -> Sample Datas", no data appears in button label.

 

View -> Show -> Sample Datas = OFF
