No such behavior with my setting:
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013), 2.8GHz i7, SSD-Drive
Thank you for your post.
Using FileMaker Pro 14.0.1 on an iMac under Mac OS X 10.10.3, I am unable to replicate the issue. My largest folder has 500-600 entries, and the files take less than one second to display.
Try creating a new user account, login to the new user account, launch FileMaker Pro 14.0.1 and try again. Is the performance any quicker?
Exact same issue running FileMaker 14.0.1 with MacBook Pro 15" (mid 2012) 16 GB RAM and 500 GB SSD. Makes Launch Center un-useable.
Thank you for your post.
Have you also tried this under a new user account?
Do you have any plug-ins installed?
Any firewalls, virus detection, or any other software that might affect network traffic?
I logged into another account and Launcher opened as expected - less than second.
Oddly, unlike previous versions, there are no plug-ins are in the Extensions folder.
Nothing that I know of that would affect network traffic.
If open a file by double clicking, FileMaker opens instantly. If I try double clicking the FileMaker 14 app, then it takes a long time (90+ seconds) to open. Of course, it is trying to open the Launcher.
Since the new user account opens the Launcher quickly, we know the FileMaker Pro 14 application is fine. Therefore, let's focus on the original user account.
Are you opening the launcher with Open or Open Remote? If "Open", are you displaying "Favorites" and/or "Recent"?
How many "Favorites" do you have?
Under FileMaker Pro -> Preferences... -> General, do you have "Show recently opened files:" active? If so, how many files are being displayed?
Have you tried clearing out the recent files? That is, go to File -> Open Recent and "Clear Recent Files", does this help?
Opening Launcher with Open - displaying both.
Recently opened is set to default - 10.
Cleared recents and no change in behavior.
PS - Odd behavior in this response box - Return takes one to the beginning of the first line.
I trashed the com.filemaker.client.advanced12.plist. When I opened Filemaker it launched as expected in a couple of seconds. Evidently, a corrupted .plist was the issue

This is a known issue when using Safari to access this forum. You can either use a different browser or have at least one character to the right of the cursor, such as a space, and then pressing return does not jump the cursor back to start.
