    FMP12 Lag in data entry



      FMP12 Lag in data entry


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      windows Pro 7

      Description of the issue

      When selecting or entering any kind of entry field int the browse layout there is a pause/delay of about .5 to 1 sec

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Take the starter solution Contacts
      Create a scrip to generate 100,000 records
      File->Manage Database
      From the fields tab select all fields and duplicate them repeat this process until their are over 2000 fields
      Save your changes (this will take a while so grab a coffee)

      Expected result

      Should not really cause any negative affect on the data entry prior to increasing the number of fields data entry was flawless even with over 100,000 generated records

      Actual result

      Try selecting one of the fields in the contact details layout for the desktop it will now have  a lag of about .5 to 1 second

      Configuration information

      Windows 7 pro running the database from a SSD

      I am not sure if the number of records has an impact on the results but these are the steps I took I originally suspected the starter solution had no lag do to the number of records.  That is not the case but it will lag when adding more fields.


      None at this time our database file with over a 2000 fields did not have this lag in version 11 but it does now, even with a brand new quad core pc and 12 gb of ram.
