It sounds like you have ALLOW Creation via this relationship enabled for the relationship, and the extra blank is appearing in the portal to support this.
Thanks. Allow Creation is not checked. The 25th container is the only one NOT appearing, and I want for 25-48 to not appear and slide up as well, but they all have borders. In my relationship, I avoided the appearance of the next new record by setting a zZero in the parent table < PKEY in the in the Child table, so only real records appear. Unfortunately in 12.0 this doesn't seem to achieve the same goal.
In your experience does this layout system work in FM11 ? I would expect it to not slide or resize due to the borders, and the fact that field objects in the portals are not sized the same as the portal objects, nor aligned to top.
I don't believe this is a change in FM12. Do you have the FM7 file where this actually works that you can post for comparison?
I've added that file. Please review and let me know what you think.

OK. I've compared the 2 files, and even used the FP7 file alone with an added text object below the portals to verify the sliding, not just the disappearing portals.
It not only works in FM11 as an FP7 file, but a direct conversion of your FP7 file to FMP12 causes this to fail to work immediately, without touching the layout. I have not been able to find settings which allow it to begin working again, either.
Fully repeatable, so clearly worthy of a bug report to FMI.
