      Summary

      "Set Tab Order" does not work

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      Win7

      Description of the issue

      I am working with a trial version. I created a simple database and used the "Set Tab Order" function to control how I wanted the tab selection to work. My settings worked great then for no reason, one field can no longer be selected through the tabs or with the pointer. In the image attached, the "Cal Type" field cannot be selected. All other fields can be selected.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Workaround

      none

               This probably has nothing to do with set tab order.

               Enter layout mode and select the field. Check the behavior settings section of the Inspector's data tab and make sure that the check box for Browse mode is selected. If it is, see if you can select "ungroup" from the arrange menu while this field is selected as it may have been formatted as a button.

               Also, if you get an error message when you click the field that the field is not modifiable, the field has been defined as calculation field.
