Summary

Can't de-select "auto-complete using existing values"

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0v1

Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

In a field from a related file: The field was set in 10 to auto-complete based on field values but in 11 I cannot uncheck it. The inspector shows the field correctly as an Edit Box and the auto-complete checkbox is grayed out and unselected. However, in browse mode it uses the auto-complete feature and I don't want it to.

When I change the field to a drop-down list, the auto-complete checkbox turns white and it's checked, but I cannot uncheck it. Every time I click the box, it flashes for a microsecond but it remains checked. Attached image shows the latter drop-down that I cannot uncheck.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Workaround

Delete field and re-place.
