    Description

    How many times have you had users ask you if you could make Table View act more like Excel by allowing the arrow keys to navigate both fields and records? I'm sure your standard answer is that FileMaker is a database, not Excel. However, with the new onLayoutKeystroke trigger function you can now make FileMaker act more like Excel by allowing the arrow keys to navigate fields, records, and even portal rows.
