FileMaker Pro blocking OS X restart (if RESUME is activated)


FileMaker Pro


13, 12, 11, maybe earlier versions

Operating system version

OS X 10.7 - 10.10

Description of the issue

If FileMaker ist started by the OS automatically (after restart, together with any other apps)
the ugly startup dialog appears ("Open New or Existing File")

If you now want to restart again, FMP stopping the restart process because of that open dialog box (that nobody needs).

Steps to reproduce the problem

activate "RESUME" in OS X.
Open FileMaker.
Restart computer.
Wait until any apps are relaunched.
try to restart computer.

Expected result

computer restart with every app and document closing.

no modal dialog should appear while launching FMP

Actual result

restart stops because FMP sometimes have "Open New or Existing File"-dialog open.


close "Open New or Existing File"-Dialog-Window and try to restart again.
