Never had that happen. Do you find that menu options are greyed out? If so check for a paused script. If a script is paused, you should see a button labeled continue appear in the status area tool bar.
Check your file for damage. Launch fileMaker without opening the file and run a recover on it.
Things to keep in mind about Recover:
While Recover almost always detects and fully corrects any problems with your file...
- The recovered copy may behave differently even if recover reports "no problems found".
- Recover does not detect all problems
- Recover doesn't always fix all problems correctly
- Best Practice is to never put a recovered copy back into regular use or development. Instead, replace the damaged file with an undamaged back up copy if this is at all possible. You may have to save a clone of the back up copy and import all data from your recovered copy to get a working copy with the most up to date information possible.
And here's a knowledgebase article that you may find useful: What to do when your file is corrupt (KB5421).
Thanks for your reply Phil!
There was no scripts that was paused, no, so I followed the steps you provided accurately and now I'll just work a little with it and see if it reoccurs, if it does, I'll report back, if it doesn't I'll just mark your answer as the correct one and assume that the problem is solved :)
