This is bothering me for years, saw it happening to other developers too, but today I saw it happening even to Matt Patrowsky in his latest video FileMaker Overview: Text Formatting Functions - ISO FileMaker Magazine
(check at 10'25") so when even he has no solution for it, maybe FileMaker can explain why this is happening (or even better, fix this?)
When I add new text on a layout, it always starts as a very thin box with text in a vertical column. One needs to drag that thin box to a normal size to see horizontal text.
I always assumed this was a setting saved when you close a non-hosted file or something like that, but apparently this is a riddle for more devs.
I would be very grateful for a tip how to correct this behaviour
