Summary

Searching in Manage Scripts hangs on first letter

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v2

Operating system version

Windows 7 Professional

Description of the issue

When the Manage Scripts window is first brought up upon the opening of a file, and the search box is used, FileMaker will hang after the first letter is typed for 10 seconds while it searches through hundreds of scripts. This only happens on the first search after the file has been opened, and all scripts are collapsed in their respective folders. After the first search, this problem disappears, and you can type a full word in.

Steps to reproduce the problem

- Open a FileMaker File with hundreds of scripts that are organized into folders.
- Try typing a word in the search box

Expected result

- The search will commence after the entire word is typed, and not begin and hang after the first letter.

Actual result

- The search will commence after the first letter is typed and not wait for the whole word to be entered.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

none

Workaround

After initial search is done, and all folders are expanded, this is no longer an issue, until the file is closed and reopened, then the same problem happens again.
