FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac 10.6.6

Description of the issue

Data in dropdown window(s) sometimes does not show, sometimes it does. When not showing it is "as if' the fonts have become white and are not visible on the white background. This is happening in two fields. When you click on the "apparently' EMPTY dropdown window, data IS entered into the field. One field is using Geneva fonts and the other, Times. In the browse mode the field(s) are blue fonts on yellow background. In dropdown they are both black fonts on white background.

Is their a way to change the background color of the dropdown window so the "white" fonts (when that happens) would be visible?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Click on the field, sometimes the list shows, sometimes it doesn't. Click again and it seems to "toggle" to the other condition.

Expected result

I'd like to see the dropdown contents all the time

Actual result

Sometimes I don't, when apparently we have white fonts on white background.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


Configuration information

Nothing I can think of


Restart FM Pro and or restart Mac.  Sometimes things are visible in the dropdown, sometimes not. No really a work around but I thought it might help
