Summary

disable password protection

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

Mac 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Installed FMP 12 a few days ago.  Tried to open a file, and got hit with a password request.  I didn't even know I'd set a password.  I DO NOT want any of my files to be password protected.  How does a password get automatically set without any user input?  Please help-- I need access to my own files, and FM 12 is blocking even though I did not tell it to.  How do I completely and permanently disable this password nonsense?  I do not want any password protected documents anywhere for any reason or at any time.  I have tried to disable the password using Manage-»Security, but there is nowhere there to disable-- only edit.  I looked through all the options and settings associated with Manage-»Security, and it still demands a password.  How do I turn this off.  Not on a one-file-at-a-time basis, but globally and forever?

Thanks
