Theme broken after local editing


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

I was working on a local copy of a database, customising a theme (luminous) for a few hours.
All the changes were saved to the theme as I went along.
When I closed filemaker, and a few minutes later reopened the file, none of the changes to the style were there -- particularly, all the new styles I had added were gone, and the layout objects assigned these styles had reverted to the 'default' for that object.
I ran a recovery, but no problems were detected.
This has happened to me before (three times over the last year), and my colleagues have also experienced the same problem.
Can I ask that you improve the way FM saves its themes, and/or improve the theme recovery tools. It's an expensive waste of time for me to have to re-do all this work.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Work on a theme on a local copy of a database

Expected result

The theme is edited.

Actual result

All the changes are lost.
