FileMaker 10 Large Text Block Bug

Description of the issue

FileMaker 10 is IMHO not usable at this time if you have large blocks of text.I filed a bug report on this problem immediately after receiving the preview version.MacOS, 10.5.6, 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo, 2GB RAMAttempting to put large values into text fields or scroll large text blocks will completely freeze FileMaker and your entire computer.I discovered this when testing the new Get ( DocumentsPathListing ) function.In my case, the listing process takes about 10 minutes and if successful produces 170,000 entries.Once the script places the resulting values in the field, you can attempt to scroll the field. This will lock up FileMaker and all applications become unusable.I don't know what the limit is or what text block size becomes unusable. --Bruce RobertsonConcise DesignFileMaker 9 Certified
