      Summary

      Black screen when trying to open Starter Solutions from File/new from Starter Solutions

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.00v4

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.6.8

      Description of the issue

      I am unable to access my starter solution files on opening Filemaker Pro 11. A search of my computer shows that they are in my ~/English Extras/Templates file.

      It would be nice to be able access them direct from File/New from Starter Solution

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Black Screen

          Thank you for your post.

          When you pull down the File menu and select "New From Starter Solution...", a NEW database file is created using the Starter Solution template.  If you made changes to an existing template, then you would need to access that file directly through Recent Files in the "FileMaker Quick Start" menu, or use a common database file that opens other FileMaker Pro files.

          I woiuld encourage you to enter this product suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:

          http://www.filemaker.com/company/contact/feature_request.html

          These web form entries are read by both Development and Product Management where they are then discussed and considered for future releases.  Although I could copy your post and paste it into the web form, there are a couple of questions asked that only you can answer.
