Hi there,


We have discovered a bug with FileMaker 14.0.5 running on OS X El Capitan 10.11.4. The bug involves the "Adjust Window" script step.


Here are the resources you will need to reproduce the bug:

a) Mac running El Capitan (OS X 10.11.4).

b) FileMaker Pro 14.0.5.

c) Two displays. (This bug only happens on the SECONDARY DISPLAY, not the primary display.)


Here are the steps you will need to take:

1. Open up your FileMaker database, and move the window over to the secondary display.

2. Hide FileMaker's status toolbar (Uncheck the menu option located at "View > Status Toolbar").

3. Run a script with the script step "Adjust Window [Resize To Fit]" in it.

4. HERE'S THE BUG: When the script gets to the step "Adjust Window [Resize to Fit]", the top of your window will disappear underneath the top of the display. Ugh!!


Note that this bug will NOT happen under any of the following circumstances:

- If you are running FileMaker 13.

- If you are running Yosemite (OS X 10.10)

- If FileMaker's status toolbar is showing.

- If the FileMaker window is on the primary display.
