Preview weirdness

Recommended Posts

I know there must be a simple reason for this, but I can't figure it out.

I have two contact records in a table (Mr Jones, record 1 and Mr Smith, record 2). I have a (non-global) letter field where I can print a letter to the contact (using merge fields, etc). In browse mode I preview Mr Jones letter, it looks great! In browse mode (while on Smith's record) when I preview Mr Smith's letter, it shows Mr Jones letter (!?!?!). While in preview mode, I can click the notebook icon to advance to Mr Smith's letter and then print the letter. What's happening? Why does the Jones letter show when I select preview while on Smiths record. I'm not using any scripts. TIA

FileMaker returns to the first record in the sort state when changing modes.

If you are on Mr. Smith's record, record 2, and change modes to Preview, FileMaker will return to record 1, Mr. Jones' record.
