The type ahead is a slowed down operation for windows users in Filemaker 10
Thank you for your post!
We'll need some more information on this one too:
-What exact version of FileMaker are these clients running? (ex. FileMaker Pro 16.0.2)
-Does this issue occur in a New File?
I was unable to reproduce any slowness with FileMaker Pro 14.0.6, 15.0.3, or 16.0.2 when Specifying a Calculation for a Set Variable Script Step. Please provide any further steps you might have to reproduce.
You might also see the recommended template on Report a Product Issue for the information to provide on future reports.
Yes, it occurs in the latest version on filemaker pro advanced for windows running on windows 10.
Do you have an update on this issue?
I too am encoutering this issue since switching from developing on a Mac to Windows. I am running FileMaker 16 Pro Advanced 126.96.36.1993 on a PC running Windows 10 Pro (Build 16299). There is a lag when typing into the 'specify calculation'. This occurs wherever you try to do it from e.g.
- opening up from the 'hide' option on the inspector
- generating auto enter caluclations from within manage database
The lag is around a couple of seconds, which is enough to be annoying. I have also had FM crash on me a couple of times during this lag period, but not for a week or so.
It occurs if you try to type in a field reference, or try to type in a function such as 'If ..'.
Have noticed this on Windows 7 as well (FMPA 16.0.4)
Do you have any plug-ins installed/enabled? If so, temporarily disable them and try again.
Do you have a sample file that consistently reproduces the lag? If so, please send it in. I have sent you a private message with instructions where to send the file.
Do you have any plug-ins installed/enabled?
No plugins installed.
I will send the file over to you.
I received your file. Thank you.
The file is prompting for credentials. Using the defaults admin/<blank> and admin/admin do not work. Please send me a private message with the [Full Access] credentials, or send another file with default credentials.
I received the new file. Thank you.
I am able to reproduce the issue in Windows 7 and Windows 10. The issue does not occur under macOS.
I have sent all information to our Development and Testing departments for review. When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.
Thanks – as I have said on a number of previous posts, I am coming from OSX so it is pretty obvious where there are little bugs like this on the Windows platform.
Development and Testing are already aware of this issue under Windows. Your post has now been attached to the original report.
OK, so does that mean they are not able to do anything about it then - I guess so?!
Windows + FileMaker = not a marriage made in Heaven
No plugins. I have only notice this on windows 10. And it happens in every file am working on.
