    Vanishing Objects on Layout FMP12


      I tried submitting this as a bug but amd having some screwy account trouble so while I wait for the west coast to get to work...


      Has anyone else had a problem with objects vanishing from a layout? Here's what happens:


      I have a Listview layout. The header and footer each have a couple global fields and some buttons. While in browse mode, from that layout, I navigate to another Form view layout. When I go back to the original listview layout, three of my footer buttons are gone. If I enter Find or Preview mode, they return.


      The file is converted from .fp7 but I removed/remade all styles using the new layout tools.


      • The offending objects are not hidden behind something.
      • No custom formatting on them.
      • I do have a couple script triggers on the layout (onLayoutEnter and onRecordLoad) but disabling them had no affect on this.
      • If I move them to the body or the header, they do not vanish.
      • If I move them to a different part of the footer, they vanish.
      • If I duplicate the layout, it has the same effect (they vanish).
      • If I make a new layout from scatch and copy all items to it, they vanish.
      • If I create a new button from scratch and copy the style from an old one that vanished, it vanishes.
      • The only thing that makes it not vanish in this case, is anchoring it to the right of the layout.


      Once I change modes, or go to and return from different listview layout, they reappear.


      I'm a bit perplexed. Anyone else see this?







      Here are before and after screenshots to be sure I'm not just going bonkers.
