Are you creating the new-style Modal windows when this happens?
Modal windows require user interaction to dismiss them, and, failing to receive that interaction or a script step which closes them, usually hang the system until you force quit.
Thanks for your reply. I have seen the option to use the Modal Windows but have not chosen to use them yet. I have purely been using the normal Document Windows. These seem to be the default and when I converted the system any other scripts using the New Window script step had used these Document Windows.
It is strange as it doesnt happen everytime. I have also had issues where the right-click menu stops working. You have to select the object then use the Format Menu option.
Hopefully there will be an update released in the near future.
I've noticed that many New Window script steps get left without any specific settings as to window name, size, or positioning. If you fill all of that info in rather than leaving it empty, does that have any effect on the script running?
My problem sounds similar (also posted it on the forum).
A converted FM11 to FM12 database.
Opening up new windows (sometimes / frequently) freezes FM.
I’ve also tried several options but the problem still exists.
Also running it on an iMac with the latest Mac OS X and 8 GB RAM.
This is coming up in several threads on this forum, and was today brought to FMI tech liason Dave Simerly's attention as an issue affecting numerous users.
