tthe first thing that occurred to me was potentially corrupt preferences. I can't recall offhand, but i question whether or not the preferences are cleared when FileMaker is uninstalled and reinstalled.
Can you confirm that have trashed the preferences? If not, that should be a very simple thing to try at least.
LEt me know if you need any clarification.
Thanks for the suggestion. I did trash the preferences, but that didn't solve the problem.
check and repair permissions with DU ?
In the GENERAL System Preferences, set "Show scroll bars" to "Always" and see what happens. If this works, this is an issue we know about. I suspect this explains why some Yosemite users might see it and some (like myself) would not.
Alternately, you can try "scrolling up" to see if the find criteria shows up. If it does, then it is definitely an issue we know about and at least, for the time being, the best thing to do is to always show your scrollbars.
If neither of these things changes the behavior of what you are seeing, then it is something else.
Whew, showing scrollbars fixed it. Thanks so much. I'm looking forward to being productive again.
Is this bug fix on Knowledge Base? I searched high and low on the forums and through the knowledge Base, but couldn't find anything. It might save other people some time if there's a fix posted somewhere.
Truth be told, I just found out about it myself a couple of days ago. So your timing was good. :-)
I'll add an article to the knowledge base about it next week. As far as I know the best, and only, workaround presently is the scrollbar one.
is there going to be a fix for the keyboard shortcuts soon?
Does this mean that the Perform Find doesn't execute it's previously defined request and is ignored or only when one wants to modify / look at it in the script and it's not shown?
I think the scrollbar issue was with only the top first item in lists disappearing.
If so then it's totally weird that seemingly GUI related setting would affect the search engine core.
This is only a visual thing, scripts are not affected.
The exact same problem occurred for me.
All the Scripted Find requests appear as blanks.
Though the Find requests appear in the database XML scheme file.
Changing the Yosemite 10.0.3 scrollbar setting under Preferences solved the problem, as described above.
