FileMaker not responding


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

I have been trying to add fields to an existing table or create a new table in the Manage Database dialogue box. When I have created the relevant fields and click the OK button in the bottom right, the dialogue box whites out slightly, and the phrase “(Not responding)” appears in the dialogue box's title bar. Moreover all of the table information disappears.

I can click on the title bar, but if I move the mouse cursor into the body of the dialogue box, it is transformed into an egg timer. I have no option but to shut the program down.

Does anyone have any idea how I can prevent this from happening because it is, frankly, bloody annoying.
