More Drop Down Lists woes

Post

I’m still having some issues with Drop Down Lists — probably this is due to pilot error since I’m fairly new to FMP.

I have created a few tables each with associated value lists (no filters) using field values.

Initially I had the control style set to Pop Up Menu for each field in question on the layout.

Next I changed the all control styles to Drop Down Lists.

One table which has 69 records shows only 62 of the items.

Another table with 33 records shows only 16 items.

Another table with 9 records shows 2 items with 3 blank lines looks like...

blank

blank

blah blah

blah blah

blank

Another with 7 records also shows 3 items and 2 blank lines looks like...

blank

blah blah

blah blah

blank

blank

None of my value lists show the correct number of items.

It seems like Drop Down Lists are set up expecting to have a minimum of 5 items/records to be present and if there are less than 5 items the blanks appear. And when there are more than 14 items to be displayed only 14 items show at a time with an elevator for scrolling.

Any idea what I am doing wrong or what’s going on?

Thanks.
