    FileMaker Won't Quit



      FileMaker Won't Quit


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.7.3

      Description of the issue

      I wish I could be more specific re: when this happens, but I have been unable to quit FileMaker on several occasions, and I can't pinpoint what is causing this to happen.  The command-Q doesn't work, quitting from the Dock doesn't work, quitting from the FileMaker menu doesn't work.  The only way I've found to get around this is to go to another application and come back.  Then it quits.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Try to quit FileMaker Pro.

      Expected result

      FileMaker should quit.

      Actual result

      No response at all from FileMaker Pro.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear



      Leave the application (go to the Finder or somewhere else), and then come back to FileMaker.

          Thank you for your post.

          What other applications do you have open?  Is there a specific application you switch to?  Do you have any plug-ins installed?  When this happens again, write down what steps you were performing just prior to this.  The sequence may provide a clue.
