Intermittent crash/quit of FileMaker when printing


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.9.2 (13C64)

Description of the issue

FileMaker is crashing frequently on my MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013). I've tested using FileMaker 12 and 13 and get the same fault. A lot of the time it is when I got to print so I assumed the print driver is out of date, I've made sure I have the latest driver installed for my printer and my machine has been installed cleanly. Other times I can just be working away and the application will quit unexpectedly.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Printing to PDF or printer, sometimes general use of FileMaker.

Expected result

FileMaker not to unexpectedly quit when printing

Actual result

Intermittently crashing FileMaker
