Steps to reproduce the problem

Simply convert FMPA11 db over using FMP12.

Actual result

Configuration information

This was a DB created in FMA11 and conversion done via FMP 12 full version as well as a trial version (both produced the same results shown in the video).

Thought is may be the machine, so we took a brand new out of the box Core i5 machine with more ram than FM would ever need and did a clean install with FMP 12 as the only application...the results were the same.

We tried to rename the scrips (thinking the naming convention was bad) so, we renamed the script to qwerty but the results were the same.

We tried to create a new folder with a brand new script...that newly created scrip would react in the same manner.

We remove all plugins from FMP11 (only had the ones that come with FMP as I do not use plugins for anything) before the conversion then in FMP 12 and still got the jumping scripts.

Workaround

None
