      Description of the issue

      Once or twice a week find I'm unable to move between Layout and Browse modes as expected. Although I seem to be in Browse mode the Layout label still appears and am unable to Quit FileMaker Pro or close windows. Force Quit only option. File opens with no errors reported.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Unable to find how this happens except to say seems to occur when switching rapidly between Browse and Layout while developing.

      Expected result

      You should be able to move between modes

      Actual result

      Although you appear to have moved to Browse mode the  "Exit Layout" button still is shown and the label at the bottom of the screen still displays "Layout" how ever you are able to Browse records as if you were in Browse mode. Attempting to close window and you you get no reaction and the "Quit FileMaker " menu item is greyed out.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      NA

      Configuration information

      This is happening once or twice a week.

      Workaround

      Force quit and hope.
