    FM Crash: Save layout while open as card window

    paul@teamdf.com

      Product and version: FileMaker Pro 16.0.1

      OS and version: Mac OS 10.11.6

      Hardware: MacBook Pro

      Description:

       

      Card window open in one window; editing its layout in another. Cmd-S to save the edited layout causes FM to crash.

       

      How to replicate:

      • Have two FM windows open.

      • In one, open a card window.

      • In the other, navigate to the card window's layout.

      • Enter layout mode and make a change.

      • Cmd-S to save the layout change.

       

      FM crashes.

       

      Workaround:

      Close the card window before editing.

          Thank you for your post.

           

          I am unable to replicate the issue.  This is what I have done:

           

          1. I created a script, "Card", with one step:

          New Window [ Style: Card ; Name: "Test" ; Using Layout: "Layout #2" (Table) ;

            Height: 500 ; Width: 500 ; Top: 0 ; Left: 0 ]

           

          2. I open a new window, go to Layout #2, and enter Layout Mode.

           

          3. In the original window, I execute a script, and a Card window appears with Layout #2.

           

          4. In the second window (Layout mode), I click the Text tool, enter "TEST" on the layout, and save the layout.  The Card window is updated to show "TEST" on the layout.

           

          Let me know what I'm doing differently than you so I can replicate the crash.

            Hi TSGal,

             

            Thanks for the efforts!

             

            I've just tried again and can't repeat it, either.

             

            Only difference from what you did was to enter Layout Mode after the card window is open, I think.

             

            I'll update this if I see it happening again, hopefully with more details about what trigger the crash…

             

            Thanks,

            - Paul
