I had seen this behavior intermittently in FileMaker Advanced 13 on MacOS-X 10.9, whereby for no apparent reason the keyboard shortcut for Layout Mode disappears from the View menu and FileMaker does not respond to the keyboard shortcut for Command-L. Then, after a period of time, the Layout Mode keyboard shortcut would re-appear.
Now that I am working in the new Mac OS-X Yosemite, I see something slightly more annoying:
- After Layout Mode disappears, it doesn't come back again until/unless I quite and relaunch FileMaker Advanced
- Other menu commands also don't respond, such as Command-R for Arrange-Group (ungroup is still available) and Command-N for a new request in Find Mode.
Hopefully, the persistence of these behaviors will make it easier for FMI to discover what's causing them.
The three screen shots attached here are examples of what I am describing.
