Cannot delete a layout

Recommended Posts


There is a layout in our database that is in a folder titled Corrupt. This layout will not delete. The layout does open and seems empty but when trying to edit or duplicate and mainly delete it - after selecting "ok" in the delete warning dialogue -  nothing happens.

Based on the DDR, there are no objects in the layout, it does not have a theme and it is not associated with any table. 

Any suggestions?

It does sound like your file is corrupt. Have you tried the Recover option? That's what I'd do. Please be aware that a recovered file is not necessarily safe to use -- highly recommend you google and read up on it.

Welcome to the forums. Please fill out your profile so we know what version of FileMaker etc. you're using. This helps us offer better advice, like giving you Mac tips if you're on Windows etc.
