Close File; Close Window Inoperable

Summary

Close File; Close Window Inoperable

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

13.0.2

Operating system version

iOS 7

Description of the issue

To initiate our solution we provide the client a launch file that opens the remote file and then close the launch file.

This worked fine for both FM 12 and FM Go 12.

For FM 13 it works as expected but with FM Go 13 it opens the remote file but will not close the launch file.

This has been implemented since FM 8 with no issues.

I do not believe that I am the only developer that uses this approach.

The script steps:
Open File [ “remote file” ]
Close File [ Current File ]

What is interesting is that is says this should not work in 12, but it did.

Tried to do a Close Window instead of Close File with same results in 13.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open File [ “remote file” ]
Close File [ Current File ]

Expected result

Close File or Close Window

Actual result

Still Open
