While scripting - selected lines of the script are appearing in white color which makes them invisible. Anyone know why or what to do to stop this? Image attached.
There are some known issue with Mojave and FMP17. Some issue were address in the latest updated.

I can’t open the image you attached -on an iPad.
Can you simply copy the screen shot in the message ?
I have reattached the screen shot as a jpeg. Can you see it now?
Not sure if you've gotten out of the bug by installing the update, but if not, you might try playing with the Mac OS highlight color to make it more bearable.
OR, install thr MBS plugin (monkey bread); it colorizes text in the scripts dialog for free, and that may override what you are experiencing.
This time it works. True pale over medium gray is not exactly easy for the eye .
As Karen suggested, apply the latest update if you haven't done yet.
Unfortunately I don't have a Mac at hand now - I am supposed to get my Mac mini next Wednesday.
Thanks for your thoughts - I had been using MBS plug in, but took it out thinking it might be the issue. Also I have changed the highlight color and no joy there either. I am confined to FileMaker 15 for the moment as my client is running a FileMaker 13 server. We hope to update soon. However my FileMaker 15 is up to date.
Are you using Mojave? As I stated in my previous post, there are known issues with such type items as you described.
FM16 and FM17 are the only two supported version on Mojave. FM17 is the only version to receive an update for Mojave.
Thanks for your reply - I think FileMaker 15 on Mojave is the issue. As I mentioned my client is still on a FileMaker 13 Server although we will switch soon. I tested this in FileMaker 18.104.22.1684 and the issue does not occur.
Sure is annoying in FileMaker 15 in the meantime however!
There seem to be a number of reported issues with a common thread of “slowness to display the user interface that occurs with some combinations of FileMaker and macOS”. FileMaker 16 Slow portal data display taking 30... | FileMaker Communityhttps://community.filemaker.com/message/823687?et=watches.email.thread[begin excerpt]My client is experiencing a NEW 30 to 60 second delay in displaying portal data when navigating from one record to another running FileMaker 22.214.171.1240. The problem started after receiving a new iMac computer running Mojave mid December 2018. I cannot reproduce this problem as I'm running older Mac OS (10.13.6) and FMP17 nor can I recreate the issue on their AWS server FileMaker Server 126.96.36.1996 and FileMaker 16 Adv client.[end excerpt] The flavor that we have seen is the list of Scripts in the Script Workspace is sometime slow to display (FileMaker Pro Advanced 15 running macOS 10.12.6) Hope that helps.
