Goto Layout causes FM13 to loop or hang.


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX 10.9.2

Description of the issue

I just converted Filemaker files from Ver 8, file format fp7. All but one file appeared to convert successfully. One of the primary layouts (Donations) can be seen if you navigate to it while in  layout mode. But if I then select "Browse", or if in Browse mode, I click on a button that is a "Goto layout Donations", Filemaker hangs.

I have FM 8 on another computer in our local network. I opened up the old ver 8 files. made a donation, then quit FM8. I went back and reconverted the main file which contains the "Donations" layout. Same problem.

Can someone give me some guidance? Thanks.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I bring up my database. From the first window (Patron layout), I click on the "Donations" butting to go to the Donations Layout. Filemaker hangs.

Expected result

Navigation to the Donations layout.

Actual result

Filemaker hangs.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No message. I have to force quit Filemaker because Filemaker is no longer responding.


None. We are a non-profit and this system is our record keeping system. Everything was working well before I upgraded to FM 13.
