"Save changes to Layout?" Dialog box pops up despite preferences set checked not to
Operating system version
Mac OSX 10.6.6
Description of the issue
I am running FM Client on a server. I have two other users accessing my main database from that server via the FM Network. The problem is every time I change views on a given layout when multiple users are connected to the database, the dialog "Save changes to Layout?" pops up every time and it's super annoying. I saw there was a preference in FM->Preferences->Layout that is a checkbox saying "Save changes to Layout automatically (do not ask)" which I checked on the server, and all client machines. However, it still pops up on everyones machine (but somehow it doesn't for one particular user, no idea why).
I posted this in the forum section, and a user said they have no trouble with this functionality in Win XP. The best I can figure, judging from the apparent randomness of the success of this preference in Mac, and its complete success in windows, I have to say this sounds like a compatibility issue with OS X.
Steps to reproduce the problem
- I have tired deleting the preferences file and starting fresh - no luck
- Trying new test database file - no luck
- Tried copying the preference file from the one user who this does work for to the preferences of other client's machines - no luck
For the Save layout changes dialog box to stop popping up
The dialog box kept popping up
