Memory Leak? - FMPA 14


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX 10.3.3

Description of the issue

Working on a file brand new file (started in FMPA 14v1), I started noticing that jumping in and out of layout and browse mode, FMPA would start to become extremely sluggish.  Clicking on an object for example would take a full 2 seconds before the click registered and the object was selected.  I opened up the Activity Monitor app and noticed that FMPA was using 1.56 GB of memory.  I hadn't run any long scripts or done anything intense with my FM file other than just going in and out of layout and browse mode testing for basic things like conditional formatting and hiding objects.  Has anyone observed this?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Go back and forth between layout and browse mode.

Expected result

Memory to stay relatively the same at normal levels.

Actual result

Increased memory usage by 5x

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None, but I plan to use FMPA until it crashes and will report that report here.

Configuration information

MacBook Pro Retina 15" (late 2014) 2.8 Quad Core i7, 16 GB Ram, 1TB SSD


Quit FMPA and reopen.
