Dropdown options sporadically greyed out/Access Privileges restricted


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.9.4

Description of the issue

While accessing a hosted file (by Triple8 using FM Server 13) with full access privileges, lately I've been noticing that certain dropdown options become greyed out.

Steps to reproduce the problem

The one thing I'm currently doing that seems to be triggering the problem, if not coincidental, is performing finds.

Expected result

I should be able to perform actions such as "Replace Field Contents" or "Delete Record", but these options are greyed out.

Actual result

Options that are greyed out include:
Filemaker Pro Advanced - Preferences
File - New Database/New From Starter Solution, Open/Open Remote, File Options, Change Password, Export Records, Save Copy As, Recover
Records - New Record, Duplicate Record, Delete Record, Delete Found Records..., Show All Records, Show Omitted Only, Omit Record, Omit Multiple..., Sort Records..., Unsort, Replace Field Contents..., Relookup Field Contents, Revert Record


Closing the solution and re-opening it tends to fix the problem temporarily.
