Summary

Searching Scripts on Windows Is Slow

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

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

Slowness

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

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.
