Summary

WebDirect Zombie Popover

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

13v4

Operating system version

Win 7 or Mac OS X 10.9

Description of the issue

If you perform a script that navigates to another layout and then back to the original and finishes up with going back to the Popover via the Go to Object (Name of Popover), the popover will not close and remains persistent across all layouts. The only way to put it to rest, is to either select another popover or enter a field in the Zombie itself.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Script launched from button or trigger in popover:

Go to Layout (different from original)
Go to Layout (original)
Go to Object (Name of Popover)

Expected result

Popover should close when clicking out of it or changing layout.

Actual result

Popover remains persistent across layouts and will not close

Workaround

Click into an editable field in the Zombie popover or open different popover. Either of these techniques converts the Popover back into a good citizen again.
