    Searching Scripts on Windows Is Slow



      Searching Scripts on Windows Is Slow


      FileMaker Pro


      13 Advanced

      Operating system version

      Windows 7

      Description of the issue

      I've got a solution that has a lot of scripts (645 to be precise), and when I need to search them on Windows I can type the first letter in, but then FileMaker stalls and (sometimes) loses the rest of what I've searched for. It's really annoying.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Open manage scripts in a sizeable file.

      Try searching for a script.

      Watch as the search stalls after the first letter.

      Expected result

      Instant searching (like it is on the Mac)

      Actual result


      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


      Configuration information

      I've used it on configs ranging from a quad i5 to a dual i3 and an 8-core oldish Xeon, all with good amounts of memory.

               Thank you for your post.

               I am unable to replicate the issue.  I have a file with more than 884 scripts, and when I go into Manage Scripts, and search for A, all entries that contain an "A" are displayed.  If I type in No, I immediately get all scripts that contain "No".

               I am using FileMaker Pro 13.0v1 under Windows 7.

               If you want to send me a clone of your file, I will try it here.  Check your Inbox at the top of this page for instructions where to send the file.
