Data not displayed in layouts


I recently installed FM Pro 11 Advanced on a MacBook running Snow Leopard (10.6.8).  On completion I was immediately prompted to update to 11.0v4 which I did.  On running the application I first went through the tutorial and used the sample database that comes with the application.  All was well.  When I came to create my own database I could create a table but could not see the field headings or the data in the fields in the first layout.  However if I went into Database Management I could see all the attributes of the table.  I know the data is in the table because I could apply a Find and produce a subset of records.  I have checked the background and text colours in the relevant fields and they are all black text on white.  As far as I know I am using all the default settings for the application.

The same thing happens when I open a database created previously during trial use of FileMaker except that when a record contains a picture, the picture is displayed normally.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing this or how to rectify it.
