Product and version : FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.4


OS and version : OS X El Capitan 10.11.2


Description : Using the "specify calculation" window for "Hide object when" under Data/Behavior in the "Inspector" will cause a crash, when you have a "Button Bar Setup" window open for a Button Bar. All unsaved work will be lost.


How to replicate :

1. While in layout mode, open a "Button Bar Setup" window for any button bar.

2. Without closing the "Button Bar Setup" window, go to the inspector, select "Hide object when" under Data/Behavior to bring up the "specify calculation" window.

3. After creating or editing the calculation, Select "OK" or "Cancel" to close the "specify calculation" window.


As soon as the calculation window closes you will receive a "FileMaker Pro Advanced Quit Unexpectedly" crash and all unsaved work will be lost.


Workaround (if any): Close the "Button Bar Setup" window before opening the "specify calculation" window.
