I have a file open (File A) and wish to open another file using the menu File -> Open.
Whenever I do this since upgrading to 13.0v5, the Filemaker application crashes?
Is it only crashing with that file? What about the sample files?
It crashes for any file. That is, as soon as I click "Open" from under File, it crashes.
What OS version?
Does it crash even after a re-start?
If so, I'd be running a permissions repair, checking disk integrity with the Disk Utility... then restart and try again...
failing that, re-install FileMaker and try again
Its OS X Yosemite 10.10.2
And yes it happens even after a re-star.
I'll try the disk utility check but the strange thing is that this same crash which occurring on my version of Filemaker Advance, also happens on my husband's version- and he has just Filemaker standard, so I thought it might be a bug in the latest version of FMP?
no problems here.. interesting that it should happen with more than 1 Mac... it does not hurt to check both macs with the utility but I would also create a new file with Filemaker and see if it crashes when opening...
It seems corrupting preference file.
Re: FM pro advanced freezing when opening file
Very strange indeed. I created a new file using their Starter solution and then went to File -> Open from there and Filemaker didn't crash. I then went back to the original file which led to the crash when File -> Open, and this time it didn't crash??
Don't understand it but its seems fixed.
Thanks for your help!
If you could post the crash report.
But not paste it here, better put it somewhere and put a link in forum.
It's still happening and the report is huge. Not sure where I can place this report for others to review/
