Summary

Layout Mode keyboard shortcut disappears

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

Advanced

Operating system version

Mac OS-X 10.9.1

Description of the issue

On my MacBook Pro, I have noticed that from time to time, in FileMaker Advanced 13, the keyboard shortcut for Layout Mode disappears.

The menu command for Layout mode still works.  The toggle in the lower left corner of the window still works.  Only the keyboard shortcut is disabled, and the symbol for it in the View menu is also gone.  This happens in a Starter Solution where there are no custom menus.

Not sure what makes this happen.  But if I quit the application and restart it, the menu command with the keyboard shortcut re-appears.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Sit next to me for a few hours.

Expected result

typing command-L will enter layout mode,

Actual result

It doesn't.

Workaround

reboot FMA-13
