    My screen goes black when i click anywhere in layout mode

      I'm new to this community. I'm very sorry if i am putting this question in the wrong place.

       

      I found a post that matches my question by searching "black screen", but am unable to figure out how to ask this person if they resolved the issue.

       

      I'm using fmpro 7 on a windows machine and in layout mode, anywhere i click i get this black screen and the drag window acts as a reverse of light and dark on the screen. it's usable but annoying. is there a setting i changed?

       

      Any help would be much appreciated.

          If I remember correctly, this issue could not be resolved by an end user and was related to Vista at the time (or I guess newer i.e Win 7)

           

          Its been a while, but I do know either FileMaker Pro Version 8 or 8.5 resolved the issue, I haven't seen the issue since.

           

          For what its worth, FileMaker 11 rectified the majority of visual defects related to Windows such as the ugly 'flickering'

          FileMaker 12 appears to have rectified the last of them (i.e when using refresh window).
