The errors which have become evident in FileMaker 15 in the last weeks are unacceptable.


  1. Databases not opening because of (internal) temporary file problems/clashes.
  2. External file References not resolving properly.
  3. Copying + Pasting a Popover Button with <<MergeField>> name trashes the object AND the layout it is in.
  4. Fm15 client on an fm 15 server on mac does not work.


Such basic errors surely must be found during testing, before the product is released? What is going wrong here?


When errors exist that damage  databases (e.g. #3), FMI should have a warning system, to inform developers and avoid unnecessary damage to their work, shouldn't they?
