Cannot see text entered in a field

Description of the issue

FileMaker Product(s) involved:FileMaker Pro 10.0v3 Operating System(s) involved:Windows XP ProDetailed description of the issue:When opening a database to edit records the mouse pointer does not turn into a text editing curser when clicking in a text field. When typing text in the field nothing appears to happen and if you press the backspace or delete keys the original text remains. However after typing or pressing the backspace/delete key(s) if you hit the enter key any edits made appear. This makes it very hard to edit when you can't see where the cursor is when editing and you can only see if you guessed correctly after hitting the Enter key.Exact steps to reproduce the issue:1.  Open a database2.  View a record3.  Click the arrow in a text field to edit it Expected Result:I expect to see text as I am typing and text disappearing as I delete Actual Result:I see no changes in the text field until the enter key is pressed Exact text of any error message(s) that appeared:N/A Any additional configuration information/troubleshooting that is relevant to the issue:1.  I had been using Filemaker Pro 10.0v1 normally for about six months when the issue appeared for no apparent reason2.  I downloaded and installed the 10.0v3 version and the issue remains Any workarounds that you have found:N/A
