Is your file local or is it hosted on a server?
Ahh. It's on the server. I guess this is one of those things that doesn't stick if it's on a server?
This article doesn’t refer to it, bt I’d say try taking the file offline for a sec, add your button and put it back on the server. Maybe it’s treated like data in global fields.
I haven’t actually added buttons to the library yet so maybe someone else can chime in who’s done this.
The other things I coud think of are file corruption or a preference file corruption for FileMaker itself.
Hope this helps,
I don't see the issue on Windows7. Do you use mac?
I found another issue(?) that once change to text only, dialog forget what icon was selected, choose 1st in built-in icons. OTOH, label text is stay while change to icon only.
If you copy a button with a custom icon in it to another file it brings the icons with it into the new library... if you then delete it the icon stays
I have noticed this problem - icons not sticking in the SVG 'library' - quite a lot, and been very frustrated by it. What's the point of having a library if you have to reimport the graphic every time?
I haven't done further testing as Agnes suggested - but yes, this was in a hosted file. This is also using FMPA on OS X. I haven't tried Windows or a non-hosted file. I mostly just wanted to say 'Me to!'.
