FileMaker 16 Crashing in Calculation Window

Has anyone else experienced FileMaker Pro Advanced v16 crashing in Windows when using the calculation window while it is attempting to guess the type ahead function, tables for fields?


We've 3 people here using v16 working on different projects on different servers (v15 and v16 servers) and a few times a day the type ahead appears to stall and then FileMaker quits and we have to relaunch and log in again. The network is sound and another developer working on the same server on the same network isn't affected, so we do not believe this is network related. FileMaker is at and we do have some plug-ins, but can't test without these as our solutions depend on them. This doesn't happen when using FMPA v15.


If I were to guess, I would say the problem is related more to table and field identification, rather than functions, but I can't be sure. We use the separation model, but the crash I've just experienced was entering a field from a 'global field' table local to the file.


I must admit, although I like the type ahead, I do think it actually slows me down within calculations while I wait for it to catch up.


There was only a single error in the Windows Event Viewer for the last crash:
