Are you using any PlugIn's?
If though, I'ld recommend to check developers site about compatibility with current FM version.
PlugIn's have been causing crashes in past already.
Also, create a brand new file and make the same kind of layout changes. Do you get a crash? Your original file might be damaged--either the damage could cause a crash or the crashes may have damaged your file.
Things to keep in mind about Recover:
While Recover almost always detects and fully corrects any problems with your file...
- The recovered copy may behave differently even if recover reports "no problems found".
- Recover does not detect all problems
- Recover doesn't always fix all problems correctly
- Best Practice is to never put a recovered copy back into regular use or development. Instead, replace the damaged file with an undamaged back up copy if this is at all possible. You may have to save a clone of the back up copy and import all data from your recovered copy to get a working copy with the most up to date information possible.
And here's a knowledgebase article that you may find useful: What to do when your file is corrupt (KB5421).
Benjamin and Phil,
Thanks for your help. I was not using Plug-Ins. I was creating a new database and the crash occurred when I changed the color of a layout. I deleted the file and will start over. I'll let you know if the problem recurs.
I deleted the file causing the problem and started over. I have created and modified several layouts without problems so it must have been a corrupt file.
