Thank you for your post.
Unfortunately, I am unable to duplicate the problem. This is what I have done:
1. I launched FileMaker Pro 10.
2. I opened a database that was created in FileMaker Pro 9 and contains a container field.
3. I found a set of records, inserted a graphic as a reference, pressed command-=, and replaced across the found set.
4. I created a new database file in FileMaker Pro 10 with a container field.
5. I created 10 records, put my cursor in the Container field, pressed command-= and replaced.
I did this on an iMac running OS X 10.5.5.
If I'm leaving out any steps, please let me know. Please give me your computer set up, and I will try to duplicate the problem here.
Thank you so much for the reply. I'll do what I can to give more detail about how I've set up my database. Perhaps I'll find an error.
In the meantime I'm in 10.5.6 on a 17" MacBook Pro Intel 2.4G, the one before the current one.
My database also contains a few different files that are relationally linked. I'll try it there too and report back to you.
Thank you so much again.
I must tell you it just worked. It had happened twice before so I thought I was justified in posting a bug report. Perhaps it was as simple as restarting the computer. But it just did what I was describing successfully, to a set of 10 records.
I noticed that the 'Reference' box was not checked yesterday after I reported to you, even though that is how I always had it set. Perhaps it was working but taking awhile loading each graphic rather than referencing them. Since I am familiar with it happening very quickly maybe I got impatient. In that case stopping the process caused a problem. But I don't want to claim that.
Thank you again for such a quick response and thank you for taking the time.
First, and foremost, I'm glad it is working for you.
I did a replace with and without the "Reference" box checked, and it worked in both cases. I know that doesn't help you, but thought I would mention it anyway.
