I am using FMP 11.0V2 advanced on Windows XP, SP3 with no trouble at all. I doubt that the fact that it's "advanced" is a factor here. Some windows systems have had display problems that were solved by updating and/or adjusting their Video Drivers. That's not something you've tried as yet so it may be worth a try.
Thanks for the suggestion. One of my cohorts here suggested that as well. After getting your message, I tried updating the driver and Windows did not find a newer or better driver for the Intel Card that I'm using on that system. But still, a good suggestion.
Note that I also said "adjust" the driver. Some users have solved the issue by changing the drivers settings. Usually, they have to slow down a refresh rate or something. (This is not an area in which I have much experience, I'm just remembering ealier posts where XP users had some display issues.)
Thank you for your post.
Another customer on this forum (Layout Objects not updating when FMP11 launched with an Applescript) reported something similar where the typed characters would display after exiting the field. The customer met with our Support Technicians at the Developer's Conference last August, and it turned out to be a conflict with two Plug-ins. As he said in the thread:
"The problem only appears with 360Works Difference Engine and CNS Menu installed at the same time. Either one alone is fine, it just happens with both installed."
Do you have any plug-ins installed? If so, try removing one (or more) and try again.
If this is not the issue, what other applications do you have running?
The answer appeared to be to upgrade FileMaker Pro. We were using FM 10 on Win 7 and after upgrading to FMP 11, the issue disappeared.
