Diagnostics:- -


The Client is sitting locally on his Mac Mini, with two screens connected, Samsung S27E650.

The Client has FileMaker Pro and Google Chrome, Gmail (Browser based) open.

The Client is downloading a specific file from one of our many FM-Databases to his desktop.

The Client renames the file, and drags the file from the desktop, across the open FileMaker windows on screen 1, to attach the file into Gmail, when Suddenly FileMaker crashes, and he now has to open the databases again.

The Client has experienced the crash up to 10 times, within the last two weeks.


I have attached a bunch of crash reports, for possible diagnostic / workaround.


How to replicate

It is intermittent fault, you can't, really.



I will try re-installing FileMaker Pro on the Clients machine.
