slow horizontal scrolling FM Pro 11


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X ver. 10.6.7

Description of the issue

Database contains about 40 fields, fields are text, number, date and two container fields with jpg icons within.

When scrolling from left to right horizontally (in the "Table" view mode) there is about a 10 second delay where the Mac color pinwheel rotates for 10 seconds, then the horizontal scroll catches up and continues. I suspect the problem is that FM Pro is loading the jpg photo icons into the respective container cells (along with the macros that link the icons to the actual jpg photos). The icons are linked to their respective photos which are contained in a folder on my desktop.

Is there any way to speed up the horizontal scrolling process?
