Summary

FileMaker 8.5 intermittently wont respond after performing a search and print

Description of the issue

We run filemaker 8.5 on all desktop computers that connect to a server the runs filemaker server for about two years now. Lately after performing a search, sort, and a print it all of the sudden stops responding after you click back to the main page. You can move the mouse around but you can't select anything with it. If you close filemaker down and then log back on to the server everything works fine. It only stops responding two or three times a day, meaning most of the time it keeps working when you get back to the main page. Our Dispatch computer is the only computer that we have seen effected, but it is the only computer logged on to the server (remotely) all day. I recently updated the computers to fix the print problem we were having (filemaker was printing blank pages on large print jobs), but this problem didn't seem to materialize until a week or two after the update. Thanks.
