Summary

Bug in FileMaker 14: Can't type ahead in table drop-down menu in calculation fields

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.0.1

Operating system version

OS X 10.10.3

Description of the issue

Please see attached screenshot. This is a new bug in FileMaker 14. FileMaker 14 no longer lets us type ahead using our keyboard in the very important "related table" drop-down menu in calculation fields. We are FORCED to use our mouse, which is tremendously slowing us down. Regardless of how radically improved the new calculation work area is, we STILL need to use this "related table" drop-down menu to quickly look at all of our fields. We NEED the ability to type ahead in this list. This worked just fine in ALL previous versions of FileMaker, except for FileMaker 14. This is the first version where this functionality has broken. Please fix ASAP!
