    Script will not stop running

      Summary

      Script will not stop running

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.0

      Operating system version

      windows

      Description of the issue

      The program is locked into find mode. I was setting a field to trigger a script and it is now locked into that script and find mode. The program/data base does not respond other than opening the field search information.

          You can halt a script by pressing esc (windows) or command-Period (mac) as long as:

          1. Allow user abort is not used in the script to disable this.
          2. The script isn't "hung" on a single step (such as a perform find that triggers indexing a field and the index is corrupted.)

          Scripts that perform finds often pause for user input. Do you see a button that says "continue" in your status area at the top of your screen?

          Is this script run from a script trigger or when the file is opened? (Maybe the trigger selected is performing the script all over again each time the script completes.)

          Can you post your script?
