Why does Manage Database dialog shows strange boxes on the interface?
Machine: Windows 7 Professional with SP1 32-bit
Language: English (Philippines)
That is an odd one. What is the base language of the machine?
It's English (Philippines).
It has to do with a font issue. If I recall well search for “font cache” on the Community.
it might be an issue on Windows according to postings from other forums

are there any known issues?
the support-team in London went through with me all tips to solve LAYOUT-font problems (del. font caches, Acrobot issues) without success. Deinstall and install FMPA16 twice hasn´t worked either.
The last advice was the follwoing one. It has to do with a Microsoft patch. The result is pending. I´ll keep you updated here:
Wonder if your Windows display control panel is set to a value other than 100%?
My question refers to an issue with windows monitors set to other values than 100%. I thought that FileMaker 16 had fixed this, but it might be worth checking and if the display is not at 100%, check to see if things change if you set it to that value.
The buggy machine runs with 125% since "years". Nothing was change but a little Win patch recently. Nothing else has changed. The still installed FMPA15 is affected too.
Try it at 100% just to see if it makes a difference
No effect, as expected...
But eliminates one variable from the equation nonetheless. I fully agree that it was a long shot, but quick and easy to test.
This Patch (KB4074906) has solved the problem!
