Hi. Since upgrading a few of our clients to FMP16 and FMP16A we are experiencing a fair few crashes when layout button's are clicked that trigger scripts where the first step is a layout change.

 

Product and version FileMaker Pro 16.0.1 and FileMaker Pro 16.0.1 Advanced

OS and version Mac OS Sierra 10.12.5 (and 10.12.4)

Browser and version (for WebDirect only)

Hardware Various including i7 MacMini, i7 iMac and 2012 MacPro

Description Sometimes when a button is pressed that triggers a script involving a layout change Filemaker will instantly crash. It is not always the same button or script, or indeed going to the same layout. This is a solution that has been developed for several years now and this issue has never been experienced in any of the previous Filemaker versions.

How to replicate With difficulty - the crashes appear to happen randomly and probably only happen something like one out of a hundred times.

Workaround Haven't found one yet.
