Version: FileMaker Pro 14.04 / FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.05

Platform: Mac OS X 10.10.5

Server: FMS 14.04 Windows 64 bit.

 

I discovered another issue with FileMaker Pro 14 today, which can not be reproduced on 13 or 15.

 

After using a Go To Related Record from a portal, I use a sequence of script steps to isolate the current record.

Show All Records

Omit Record

Show Omitted

 

This has the desired effect, except in some cases on FM 14 where the current record focus is lost and the first record in the table becomes the current record.

This has obvious issues and can be disastrous. In this case a prescription was being printed in the wrong name ...

 

The issue remains for that record or a few records until restarting FM Pro. Then it works for a while and can reappear on the same record, or can appear in a new place.

The issue can be hard to reproduce, but I can make a video and send it via PM if wanted.

 

It almost makes me suspicious of a database issue, but it works perfectly in version 13 and 15.
