      Summary

      FMP11 Relational Graph objects disappear when selected - Windows 7

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FileMaker Pro 11

      Operating system version

      Windows 7 Professional

      Description of the issue

      Relational Graph objects disappear when selected. This happens in all but a few of the entry points (windows from which one accesses) for the Relational Graph.

      I have determined that this issue is:
      1.   caused by Windows 7, and
      2.   applies only to FileMaker Pro version 11.0v2

      I have to bulk scroll to a new page then go back. The TOs and comments blocks just vaporize when I TOUCH anything.

      I re-installed FMPA11, and had the same results.
      This does not happen in any other program.
      This does not happen in FileMaker Pro 10.
      This does not happen on with FileMaker Pro 11 on Mac OS.

      I can use any file.
      The file is not corrupt.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Add TOs to the graph.
      Add relationships to TOs.
      Add comments to the graph.
      Commit the graph.
      Reopen the graph.
      Click on the white space anywhere near the objects.
      Objects all disappear.

      Expected result

      Objects should not disappear.

      Actual result

      Objects disappear.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Configuration information

          For me, this is also one of the issues with using FM10 on a Windows 7 box (along with a host of crashing issues that make it unusable).

          Your issue has also always been a problem in 11, though I think it is somewhat better with v2 then in v1.  Nonetheless, it is still just one of a handful of issues (script step dialog scrolling problems, window focus/navigation problems and/or changes, lack of keyboard shortcuts) that keep me from using FM 11 on my Windows 7 machine.
