Multi-line button center alignment bug on FileMaker Go

Product and version

FileMaker Go_iPad


OS and version

iOS 11.4



iPad 6th generation 2018



Buttons with text that include an icon to the left or to the right and span multiple lines ignore center alignment set in the Inspector pane. This only happens in FileMaker Go.


How to replicate

Please see the attached files for examples. There is an iPad screenshot with the problem highlighted in red color.


Create a button with text and an icon to the left or right, zero padding, and center alignment. Add enough text so it spans 2 lines or more. Compare the center alignment of the icon in FileMaker Go to the desktop version in FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced.


Workaround (if any)

Add some padding to the left or right to offset the left or right alignment that is imposed on the button and give the illusion that it is centered.
