Product and version - FileMaker Pro


OS and version - Mac OS - El Capitan (10.11.6)


Hardware - MacBook Pro (Mid 2015)



When connected to a single hosted database hosted on FMS, a momentary loss of connection causes FMP to display the "Reconnect" dialog, but clicking "Reconnect" almost always (+ 95% of the time) almost always fails.


If multiple hosted databases are open, FMP 15 reconnects to all except for the DB that had focus.


How to replicate


1. Open Remote

2. Temporarily disrupt the network connect (Turn off Wi-Fi or unplug Ethernet cable)

3. Reconnect

4. Observe


Workaround (if any)

1. Log back in (losing any development that was underway, such as an updated but unsaved script, unsaved schema changes, etc.)
