      Summary

      FileMaker Crashes when deleting a tab from a tab control

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.02 Advanced

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.8

      Description of the issue

      FileMaker Crashes when deleting a tab from a tab control

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Particularly when duplicating a layout with a tab control that already exists on the layout. Delete a single tab with objects on it then save the layout. FM will crash on save.

      Expected result

      Not to crash

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None

      Configuration information

      This has been found on FMP 12 v1 and v2. Will be upgrading to v3. Also tested on OS X 10.7 and 10.8. Crash occurs on both.

      Workaround

      Wait for the correct alignment of the sun, moon and starts, bow 3x to the east then try again.
      This also occasionally plagued FMP 11 although it was possible to work around by selecting the tab control, then scrolling so that it no longer appeared in the window, then selecting edit tab control from the menu and deleting it. This does not work in FMP 12.
