I think your layout got corrupted. The best way to handle that is to create a new layout. It happens on occasion.
Sometimes if you copy the elements to a new layout, that solves the problem. Sometimes it doesn’t.
I would do a consistency check on the database or you can do a recover and if it does’t find anything wrong with your data you can use it. Just because you had a corrupt layout it does not affect your data.
Don’t use the recovered file if it made corrections. Actually, best to run it without giving it the option to make changes. Just let it find issues and make an educated decision as to how to handle it.
Hope this helps,

Thanks for your reply Agi. I couldn't touch anything on the layout without it crashing, so had to rebuild the layout from scratch. Just really odd and unexpected to corrupt the layout by touching a FMv13 element in a lower version. I hope they can fix this issue.

until “they” do, remember that the File options in FM 13 allow you to set a minimum version for a file to be opened with.
Yes Oliver, that will be really important to use if the Popovers are employed.
