    Opening Filemaker database with option key down causes finder window to close in OS X 10.10.1

      Summary

      Opening Filemaker database with option key down causes finder window to close in OS X 10.10.1

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13.0v4

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.10.1

      Description of the issue

      When we have a database with a default guest account, we hold down the option key while opening the database to enable log in with another account. 

      Holding down the option key while launching any file in OS X 10.10.1 causes the finder window that the file is selected from to close.  OS X system behaviour overrides FileMaker option key use.

      It would be very helpful if this was not the case.  A very small but often repeated annoyance.

      Perhaps an additional alternate key to hold down that would pop up the FileMaker log-in dialog might but a possible solution.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Just hold down the option key while launching any file in OS X 10.10.1 and watch the finder window close.

      Expected result

      File maker login dialog and no finder window close

      Actual result

      File maker login dialog and  finder window close

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      It is not an error just requires reopening the finder window again and again during testing... or disabling the guest access :  )

      Workaround

      disabling the guest access :  ) or any other default access that does not require a password.
      Not really a solution ...
