Thank you for your post.
Yes, I can confirm this issue still exists in FileMaker Pro 11 on both Windows and Mac.
Wow! You are rockin' fast, TSGal!
Link to orig problem.
BTW, I really do hope that this does get fixed this time around as it makes list view with user entry into a global field irrelevant.
I agree. Stella Luna hit the nail on the head ... how can FMI sell a product and not fix major bugs in the version currently being sold on their website? Someone shouldn't have to buy a future release (pig in poke) HOPING it will be fixed (because FMI refuses to say) sometime during THAT NEXT release.
The list of 'prior-11' bugs is still very long and now with vs. 11, another 20-or-so bugs have been added. FMI is demonstrating that they are listening ... I hope they continue to push hard at catching up. The first updater for vs. 11 should be out soon (wild guess, since we've never told) but I hope it is substantial.
Dear FileMaker Inc.
This bug really needs to be fixed _now_. It is getting a great deal of annoyance. We, your customers, haven been waiting for more than 1.5 years now for a fix to a problem that is _very_ bothersome. So many releases have given you the chance to address this problem since the first report, and yet it persists in 11.0v3! This is really unacceptable. People for whom we develop runtime solutions and who are unfamiliar with the technical hiccups FileMaker still has get easily confused by such defective behavior, and you're not even giving us a hint toward why the problem hasn't long been eliminated. What are we supposed to tell our customers? "We're sorry, but FileMaker doesn't seem to give a damn"?
