      Field Borders and fills ignored when printing

      Post

      I have upgraded to Filemaker 12 and when i have created a new layout everything looks fine, and when i print a blank record with fields as formatted everything is fine. But when i enter data and try to preview or print all the borders and fills are ignored. 

      Graphics and objects with fills print fine, it is just the formatting of the fields.

      They are not sliding objects, and the actual data entered prints fine.

          Showing field borders and fill for the current record
          If you have added borders or fill to a field, you can display the borders and fill on only the current record or on all records in the field in List View and in reports. For information on adding borders or background color or images, see Adding borders, fill, and baselines to fields.
          To show field borders and background fill on only the current record:
          1.
          In Layout mode, choose the layout you want to work with from the Layout pop-up menu.
          2.
          Click Layout Setup Layout Setup button in the layout bar.
          You see the Layout Setup dialog box.
          3.
          To show field borders and background fill for only the current record in List View or a report, select Delineate fields on current record only.
          4.
          Click OK.
          Notes
           •
          If you select Delineate fields on current record only, borders and fill will show on the current record in List View, but not when you print, print to PDF, or preview the records being browsed. Borders and fill do print for all records in a field if the option is deselected.
           •
          Fields in summary parts, header parts, and footer parts are styled like other text in these layout parts, and do not display borders and fill.
           •
          Summary fields do not display borders and fill, but will show the field frame when the field is in the Focused display state.
           •
          Delineate fields on current record only (displaying borders and fill on only the current record) is not supported in Instant Web Publishing. Borders and fill show on all records in Instant Web Publishing.
