      Summary

      Filemaker Pro 12v2 white screen when searching with formatting bar enabled

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12v2

      Operating system version

      Windows 7

      Description of the issue

      When the formatting bar is enabled and a scripted search takes place (with freeze window) the solution turns completely white whilst the search is being performed.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Enable the formatting bar.


      Create a script to
      1. Freeze window
      2. Change layout
      3. Perform a find
      4. Return to the original layout.

      Expected result

      No white screen, the display should remain on 'frozen screen'

      Actual result

      White screen is briefly displayed
      Not quite a flicker but dependant on the time it takes to search.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error messages involved

      Workaround

      Turn off / hide the formatting bar whilst performing a scripted search.
