Screen turning black


Recommended Posts

I'm using FMP 8.5 on a vista machine. When I'm in the Layout mode moving objects, the entire screen turns black! I have to estimate where I want to move things and then nudge them into place with the arrow keys. Any suggestions?

This was a known problem with v8.5 and Vista. Download and run the updater for FileMaker Pro 8.5.

1. The window no longer turns black when it redraws in Browse, Find and Layout modes.

2. The relationships graph no longer turns gray when the user clicks a mouse in the graph.



1. Sending a large print job to a file or to a printer no longer causes blank pages to be produced and data to write to the screen.
