FileMaker Window Menu fails to list all open files


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows XP SP3

Description of the issue

Under circumstances that appear to be random and thus very difficult to reproduce, FileMaker Pro will fail to list all windows to all files as shown in the attached screen shot.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open a number of different FileMaker files and then pull down the windows menu and check to see what is listed.

Expected result

That all windows would be listed in either the main Windows menu or the Show submenu (if window is hidden).

Actual result

Occasionally, all windows are not listed in this menu.


The missing files can be accessed by selecting them from Open Recent.
