Various dialogs don't work and cause FMP to freeze

Product and version:           Filemaker Pro Advanced 14.0.4

OS and version:                 Windows 7,  v6.1.7601

Description:                        See Title

How to replicate

     An example is the Custom Menus dialog.  I have an 'Other' menu created with  various menu items. When I try to associate a script with one of the menu items by clicking the "Specify" button for 'Action', I see the dialog 'react' as though the script window opened but the actual script selection window doesn't appear. If I try mouse clicking anywhere within Filemaker I get a 'tink' sound. If I press various keys like the Tab key, arrow keys, etc. then hit the Enter button, I can get the the Script selection window to eventually come up. However, if I select a script and click the Ok button, the selected script isn't shown next to the Action checkbox.  The only way I've been able to exit the dialog is to end the FMP process in the Windows Task Manager.

 

Similar things happen with a couple other dialogs like setting up for a Show Custom Dialog script step -the dialog never appears. Essentially, the Show Custom Dialog is unavailable in FMP adv. v14.04

 

Is it possible to downgrade to 14 v2?

 

Workaround:  None
