Summary

Hidden Title Bar in Snow Leopard

Description of the issue

Using FileMaker Pro 10.0v3 on Mac OS X 10.6.2 Snow Leopard, periodically, but on a random basis, when the open database's window gets rendered, (following an event such as a search or switching between windows), the window moves location so that its Title Bar (containing the traffic light buttons, Title, various buttons, and the Toolbar Disclosure button, etc.) becomes hidden (or not rendered) behind the Apple Menu Bar at the top of the screen. The Button Bar immediately below the Title Bar is always hard up against the underside of the Apple Menu Bar, even though the window was previously floating free. This means it is impossible to drag the window back to where it was, and you cannot tell if the Title Bar is present behind the Apple Menu Bar or not. Pressing Option/Command/T has no effect other than to cause a beep, implying an invalid action. The only cure is to select the Apple Menu Bar/Window/Tile Vertically menu option, and manually resize the window. When the database has its Title Bar hidden, opening a second different database causes the first one to be rendered correctly. It may not be relevant, but the problem databases started life as FileMaker Pro 5 databases, and were recently imported into FileMaker Pro 10. I have not tried new Pro 10 Databases to see if they have the bug.
