Moving new, unsaved database window freezes open database


#1

I have a database with data in several fields and with multiple procedures and forms. The data sheet and one procedure are open.

I create a new database from the File menu and, without saving it, I move the new database window slightly. I now cannot access text in the original sheet and procedure and Panorama has frozen.

I don’t have time at the moment to test this behaviour with variants of the original database but there is clearly something awry.

I did a quick test and it appears that the problem arises only with my initial database - I can’t repeat it with other databases. Can anybody else?


#3

I can now repeat this behaviour with any database.

Open a database and force quit PanX (you may need to do this twice).
Cmd-N for a new database.
In the new one, close the Properties window and move the window.

All windows are accessible but you can’t access anything in them and the data sheet of the new window has no field names and perhaps no records, as in:

Whoops, make that:

Open a database and force quit PanX (you may need to do this twice).
Open the existing database again.
Cmd-N for a new database.
In the new one, close the Properties window and move the window.
