Rectangle tool does not disengage


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.6

Description of the issue

(FM Pro Advanced 11 running on OS X 10.6) When using the rectangle tool to draw a rectangle, the dashed rectangle created by the click and drag continues to follow my cursor around the computer screen as if I am still creating the rectangle.  Clicking the mouse button does not disengage the rectangle tool.  Furthermore, no other buttons or controls in the FM window are operational.  I am forced to use Force Quit from the Finder.  This is happening using the 04a_Bonsai.fp7 file used in the Training Series Manual.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Select the rectangle tool.
2) Begin to draw a rectangle.
3) Problem now occurs--cannot disengage from the rectangle tool.  The dashed line rectangle follows the cursor all around the computer screen.

Expected result

I expect the rectangle tool to disengage when I click the mouse.

Actual result

Rectangle tool does not disengage.
