FM 12 Portal Row Conditional Value List Checkbox Display Issue

When a portal row field displays a conditional value list as a checkbox set all rows display the checkboxes of the first portal row until the field is made active, in which case the correct checkbox set is displayed. For example:

 

- portal Field A determines the value list displayed for Field B

- when Field A contains "X" Field B value list items are "A, B, C"

- when Field A contains "Y" Field B value list items are "1, 2, 3"

- create portal row 1 and 2

- set row 1 Field A to value "X": row 1 Field B displays value list items "A, B, C"

- set row 2 Field A to value "Y": row 2 Field B displays value list items "A, B, C" (expected value list items "1, 2, 3")

- click on row 2 Field B: row 2 Field B displays value list items "1, 2, 3"

- click outside of row 2 Field B: row 2 Field B reverts to value list items "A, B, C"

 

The radio button set format also displays this behavior but the drop-down list or pop-up menu does not. This is only a problem in FileMaker 12. I created a test file in FM 11 which displays the check box set properly. When I converted the file to FM 12 the behaviour changed.

 

Has anyone else encountered this problem ? Any work-around or correction?
