      Full Screen crashing the Dock

      How to replicate


      Open any solution.

      Make the window Full Screen.

      Create a New Window.

      Make that Full Screen as well and merge into Split Screen.

      Un-FullScreen one of them.

      Try closing the one left on Full Screen and you get crash of the Dock.


      To restart the Dock slide up 3 fingers on the mouse.



      Just exit Full Screen on all windows before closing.

          Thank you for your post.


          I am not getting a crash of the Dock.  Using FileMaker Pro 14.0.3 under Mac OS X 10.11.1, this is what I have done:


          1. I created a database file, TEST.fmp12.

          2. I made the window Full Screen by clicking the green fullscreen button in the upper left corner of the window.

          3. I positioned my cursor near the top of the screen, and the FileMaker Pro menus appeared.  I selected New Window.

          4. With "TEST-2" now showing, I made that window also full screen.

          5. Under Mission Control, I merged the two windows into split screen.

          6. I selected "TEST" and "un-Full Screen" it.

          7. I closed "TEST-2", and although I got a black screen, I was able to scroll down to the bottom of the screen, and the Dock appeared where I could select FileMaker Pro to show TEST.


          Let me know what I am doing differently than you.
