Invisible text


FileMaker Pro


8.5 & 11

Operating system version

OS X 10.5 & 10.6  Intel based Macbook Pro

Description of the issue

In All the starter solutions,all  the text is invisible. I tried changing the color, but the only thing that works is to change the font to something other then Ariel & Verdana. These two fonts are system fonts, they are installed and check out to be OK according to Fontbook &  Font Doctor.

When I run Filemaker Pro 8.5 or 11, on my G5 power pc based system, using the starter solutions, the text displays as it should.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Select a starter solution.

Expected result

I should be able to see the text.

Actual result

No text is visible.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


Configuration information

MacBook Pro intel based 2.4 ghz Snow Lepoard & Lepoard.

Works as expected on my Power pc G5 2.5 dp.


go to layout mode, go to edit menu, select all, go to font menu, choose another font.

You have to do this to every layout in the database.
