    Script Workspace Hanging


      Product and version

      FileMaker Pro Advanced (64 bit)


      OS and version

      Windows 10 (64 bit)



      Intel i3-6100U

      8GB Ram

      2TB HDD



      Navigating the script workspace causes FileMaker to hang.


      How to replicate

      When the script workspace is NOT full screen, double click a script from the Scripts menu to edit it and then maximise the script workspace. This often takes you to a different script completely, upon trying to change the script you have been taken to or close the current script, FileMaker crashes.

          Thank you for your post.


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


          1. Using FileMaker Pro Advanced 16.0.1 under Windows 10, I opened a database file that contains 20+ scripts.

          2. I go into Scripts Workspace, and with no script selected, I double-click the third script.

          3. With the script active, I maximize the Scripts Workspace, and I am still on the third script.

          4. I select another script and close the third script.


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

            I have just tried to replicate myself and it was working as expected however I thought (randomly) it may be triggered when the script workspace is a certain size to begin with. I attempted to resize the script workspace down manually to be very small and it locked up at that point.


            This issue was raised by one of our team members a couple of weeks ago and I hadn't be able to replicate until today. If we have anymore info' to pass on then I'll post it here.


            Thanks for your help!
