FM17 Layout Mode Performance

Filemaker Pro 17.02

Mac High Sierra and Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016

lots of RAM, lots of disk space, i7 processors or XEON



The new Object/Field browser introduced in FM17 is not performing well in daily use.  It drastically slows down the time it takes to switch to layout mode with even moderately complex solutions.  The field/object viewer can be hidden, but then there is no mechanism to search for field names when designing layouts.


The speed needs to be improved drastically, or we need a floating Field picker that is more efficient as an option.
