    Retina Display: FileMaker 15 UI gets unresponsive on input fields w/ scrollbars


      This is a severe bug on all Retina Macs (El Capitan & Sierra)

      Filemaker 15 gets extremely slow when you have a layout with fields w/ vertical scrollbars and 4 side autosizing enabled.



      - Have a Mac with a Retina display (like a MBP Retina)

      - Have Sierra or El Capitan on your Mac installed

      - Have latest FileMaker / Advanced installed

      - Have only one window (no Script Editor open!)

      - Have a layout with one field with vertical scrollbars enabled

      - Click Inspector Inspector button in the layout bar, then click Position. In the Autosizing area, select all 4 anchor lines.

      - Put text into the field, so that it needs a lot of scrolling


      You will notice:

      - The click into that field needs much longer than expected until it is active

      - Scrolling is very sluggish

      - Selecting text is very sluggish

      - Input is very sluggish


      Then open the same FM DB on a Non-Retina Mac (w/ Sierra or El Capitan): Everything is fast as usual. So this is definately a Retina problem.

      I added a FMP file to demonstrate.
