We have a Filemaker Go on iPads and there is a layout with portal rows, when scrolling through it hesitates and you must wait to scroll down. We have offline files on the iPad, although it happens when we connect to the Filemaker server as well.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Hey Caroline!  How ya been?

How many related records in the portal?

Does it only do it on the first scroll, meaning maybe all the portal records didn't load?

After a short time on the layout and same record, does it continue to do it?

Hi Steve,

I'm hanging there and you? Hope you are well with this Pandemic and all the other crisis!

Well the related records in the portal depends, but they can have up to 60, and it doesn't just do it on the first scroll. It seems to get stuck actually when you are on it a while, which is weird. So yes when you are on the same record.

I guess to keep the thread going...what versions of:



-FM Server

How about the theme(s)?

Maybe stripping down the layout to see if something is giving it a performance hit?

iPad generation 7

Filemaker 18 Go (I tried Filemaker 19 Go as well)

Filemaker 18 Server

Yes I thought about stripping down t layout and the theme is basically made from scratch. I'm waiting to hear back from one of the field engineers to get a better understanding of when the scrolling "stutters".

Thank you so much Steve for trying to help me.

      Can anyone point me to resources or methods for annotating PDFs in FileMaker go on the iPad?
      Go Draw does not support PDFs. I’d like to draw on a pdf and then save it in a container. I assume I have to do this outside fm go and then bring it back into the container. 
      What technique requires the fewest steps?

      [Cross Post - I posted this as Claris Community, but didn't get any bites after 24 hours]
      I am trying to scroll to the active record in List view.
      It works perfectly in Pro (19).
      I am running the script from Go (iPhone) using the FileMaker Network (lightning cable to my Mac)
      I cannot get it to work in Go. It goes to the right record and field because I can manually scroll to it, but the script won't do it.
      Here is the simple script:
      Go to Field [Select/Perform; Person::FirstName]
      Scroll Window [To Selection]
      It doesn't budge in Go.
      I have used a dialog window/Data Viewer to confirm I'm actually in the right field and on the right record, but Go will not scroll to it.
      I have tried every imaginable combination of Pause/Refresh Window/Scroll Home/Scroll End, etc.
      Nothing in the docs indicate it should work differently between Pro/Go.
      Anyone have any ideas?

      I have a shopping list app for personal use.  On the MacBook it works fine.  I have a global search field which searches through the list of existing items.  I have a script trigger (On Object Modify) on the field which allows a 'type ahead' search when each letter is entered.  On the phone in FileMaker Go, the keyboard drops off the screen and then reappears when I type each letter.  Pretty disconcerting to use.  Is there anyway to stop this please??  I have attached the script I use for the type ahead.  Thanks.

      Hi.  I am creating a small app for my iphone but for some reason the keyboard will not display.  I have to press on the symbol (3 lines and an arrow) to display it.  I have tried all the different combinations but without success.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks.
