Please use this space to report issues with any products on the FileMaker Platform. Be sure to follow this template:


Product and version FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.5

OS and version OS X 10.11.5

Hardware MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014)



Accessing the enter calculation window for hiding an object crashes FileMaker when button bar setup is open.


How to replicate

In layout mode, double click on a button bar containing more than one button while the inspector in open in data tab. Doesn't matter which button. The button bar setup palette will open. Click the pencil icon in the inspector to the right of the "Hide object when" field to open the enter calculation window. Click OK. Instant crash - every time.

Workaround (if any) Closing the button bar pallette prior to entering the formula screen prevents the crash.
