    text disappears after moving file to another computer



      text disappears after moving file to another computer


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac OS 10.7.2

      Description of the issue

      I've been developing a solution on my 24" iMac, display at 1920 x 1200. I transferred the file to a MacBook Pro to work on it while away from home. When I open the file on the MacBook, all text has disappeared, whether in Preview, Layout, or Browse mode.

      Expected result

      I expect text to display regardless of which computer I'm using, or which screen resolution I'm using.

      Actual result

      See desc. of issue.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


      Configuration information

      I experimented with different display resolutions. The MacBoo Pro's resolution is 1440 x 900, and I also tried it on a Dell display connected to the MacBook at 1920 x 1080. Then I tried other resolutions, all to no avail.

      I use Parallels Desktop software to run Windows 7 on the MacBook Pro; when I open the file in Filemaker for Windows, all the text appears fine.
