Summary

Status Bar Changes Don't Stick

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11v2

Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

Customizing the status bar (i.e. removing buttons, removing  QuickFind) does not work if the customized bar's window is not the last one closed.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Open fileA and fileB
2) Remove Sort button from fileA

Note: fileB still has the sort button

3) Close fileA
4) Close fileB
5) Open fileA and fileB

Result: Sort button is still there.

Expected result

1) A status bar change should be carried over to all open windows (hidden or not)
2) An explicit status bar change should be retained and stored regardless of whether or not other windows are open

Actual result

1) Status bar change only effects current window
2) Status bar change is lost if the effected window is not the last one closed.

Workaround

Open a single file with a single window and be sure it does not reference any other files that might be automatically opened in the background.
