Summary

Multiple redraws of FMP window when "Search Companion" is open on WinXP

Description of the issue

Problem: FMP screen redraws multiple times when bringing FMP window forward, changing layouts, or switching between find/browse/layout/preview Impact: FMP becomes almost unusable...I've seen cases where you get 10+ redraws for one click in FMP. Isolation: This has been observed by almost all of our FMP users (WinXP) on 8.5/9/10. In each case, they had a "Search Companion" window open (this is the Windows Explorer non-indexed file search engine with the dog icon) Workaround: Close all "Search Companion" windows and the problem goes away.
