Filemaker FM 13, Mac, Yosemite 10.10.2, Freeze open alias file, not responding

Post

I had been using a Mac Mini with Yosemite 10.10.2. I had been using FM for several years.

PROBLEM: Yesterday I install a new hard drive with a complete new clean mac system and reinstall the FM 13 on it. If I open de application, this will freeze and I need to force quit. I did a lot of research and finally discover that if on the open file you have a alias with a missing original file the application freeze. I could open FM from any document file, but not from application, or if you open the application and try CMD O  (open) then freeze on same conditions.

SOLUTION: You only need to remove the alias (with missing original) on the file to get this work.  I hope this will help somebody.
