      Summary

      Sharing > IWP Dialog causes display corruption and usually a crash

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.x

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.6.6

      Description of the issue

      After opening the File > Sharing > Instant Web Publishing... dialog all is OK unless there are more than the 9 files in the Currently open files list. If there are more than 9, scroll bar appears and as soon as the scroll bar is operated, the window behind gets updated with a portion of the scrolling files list starts scrolling a portion of its window. If you dismiss the dialog, then sometimes FileMaker will unexpectedly quit immediately and sometimes unexpectedly quit later.

      Go to File > Sharing > Instant Web Publishing...
      In the Currently open files list, use the scroll bar.

      Actual result

      Crash

          Thank you for posting, sorry about the late response.

          I was able to reproduce this behavior in both the Instant Web Publishing and ODBC/JDBC sharing dialogs. I couldn't reproduce a crash immediately after exiting the sharing dialog but did get one a bit after exiting. This behavior is not reproducible on the Windows side. I've forwarded your post along with my findings to our Development and Quality Assurance (testing) departments for confirmation.
