Having trouble entering data in browse mode in FM Pro 13

Post

This is my first development project, and I'm having trouble entering data in browse mode.  I've set up layouts and imported a few files from FM12 format.  In Browse mode, some of my "edit box" fields work and others don't.  Using the "Inspector" feature, I can't find any difference between the set up in the "Data" tab and "Behavior" subsection.  I have the box checked for field entry in both Browse and Find modes.  I'm having the same trouble when I view as Form or view as List.  Similarly, I can't get any of my drop down menus to work in browse mode.  In Find mode, I can type in the fields where the "looking glass" icon is, but the data I'm typing doesn't stay.

Basically, I imported about 1/2 of the data I needed from an older FM12 format, and I'm trying to manually enter some or copy/paste some of the other data for a small number of records (<50).  

 

Any suggestions are welcome.
