Summary

Layout Menu Items are Unselectable after closing a file and opening it again

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.1

Operating system version

OS X 10.3

Description of the issue

Layout menu items are greyed out and act as if they are not able to be selected (See attachments below) after closing and re-opening a File.

Only way to fix is to close filemaker completely and restart it.  This is with a [FULL ACCESS] account so I know it's not a permissions issue.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Connect to hosted file
2) Run Show/Hide Menu command to show Menu
3) Browse to Layout Menu (See Pic 1)
4) Close File
5) Re-Open Hosted file
6) Run Show/Hide Menu command to show Menu
7) Browse to Layout Menu and now I am unable to browse to the layouts I was able to select previously(See Pic 2)

Expected result

I can browse to the menus that are selected in the Manage Layout Dialog.

Actual result

Randomly grays out layouts and folders.

Workaround

Completely shutting Filemaker down and restarting it fixes the issue
