      Difference between Windows and mac when searching for data in a pop-up menu

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      Windows XP

      Description of the issue

      The database configured on a Mac OSX 10.8 allows you to type in 1-3 letters and search for data in that field.  If it's a field with 1800  names, using the type-in function is an easy way to get close to the name.  When converted to Windows, the type-in method doesn't work, and you must scroll down to get the name.  This is very onerous with 1800 names in the field.
