Summary

BUG: WebDirect Tabbing delay between Fields causes odd text input behavior

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

13.0.1

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.9.2

Description of the issue

Entering Text Edit Fields in webdirect served pages has problems when user presses Tab key, but text continues in the same field, which causes user to press backspace to correct misplaced text, but then system catches up and removes text following the Tab instance, inserting it on the correct next field, but now the next field is wrong because the user hit the backspace, believing what he was seeing on his screen.

Please use Javascript to render pages, which is immensely faster (like Gmail, etc.)
