    Manage External Data Sources dialog in Yosemite doesn't show data sources initially

      Summary

      Manage External Data Sources dialog in Yosemite doesn't show data sources initially

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.10 (Yosemite)

      Description of the issue

      I have a two-file solution. Data file is hosted remotely; the front-end or UI file is stored locally on my Mac. When I open File > Manage > External Data Sources, the list of external data sources is initially blank, even though I am in fact connected to the remote data file and viewing its data. To see the data source in the list, I have to click on the View By menu. Then the data source will appear.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      See description. Summary:

      • Host external data source remotely, and UI file locally
      • Go to File > Manage > External Data Source

      Notice that it's blank.

      Expected result

      The external data source was defined long ago and is in fact being used. I expect it to be visible when I open this dialog.

      Actual result

      It ain't there.

      Configuration information

      Mac OS X v10.10 (Yosemite, latest public beta as of 9-24-14).
      FileMaker Pro 13.0v3

      Workaround

      Fiddling with the View As menu in the manage data sources dialog will prompt the data source to be displayed.
