Summary

Export records in tab format as Mac file but will only open in Parallels

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0 v 2

Operating system version

OS 6.5

Description of the issue

I follow instructions for exporting records and a newly created tab-delineated file is created, but it only opens in Parallels (although I have selected Mac format). I've never had this problem before and I have been using Parallels and FM Pro a long time. I updated OS X and FM Pro, but the problem persists.

Steps to reproduce the problem

File
Export records
Save as (name, location) tab delineated file
output file type:  Mac
File is created

Expected result

File created on Mac desktop that can be opened in a Mac program

Actual result

"Parallels" file  created on Mac desktop that when opened causes Parallels to launch
