Change default Quickfind status for new field instances in Layout Mode.

    Problem: As of this writing (2015-12-09, Filemaker Pro & Advanced v14.0.4), when fields are added to a layout they always default to having QuickFind *enabled*. When dealing with complex & multi-layered layouts, e.g. lots of tabs, pop-ups, etc., it is extra work to have to track down and manually disable Quickfind for fields that do not require it -- which is usually >95% of fields in any given layout.

     

    Solution:

    Have newly-added fields respect the overall Quickfind status for a layout. E.g. in "Layout Setup...,"  as follows:

    - If "Enable Quickfind" in "Layout Setup.." dialog is checked, then enable Quickfind by default for every new field instance added to that. layout.

     

    - If "Enable Quickfind" in "Layout Setup.." dialog is NOT checked, then DISABLE Quickfind by default for every new field instance added to that layout.
