Double click to enter data; bug or feature


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Upgraded from FileMaker 6 to FileMaker 11 with a scientific data base; 100+ fields with popup data entry; in the older versions of FileMaker I could enter data randomly; i. e. I entered data in a field, then it moved to the next field with a popup window, but since I have so many fields & only enter data in 20-30% of the fields I could click on any other field & enter the data. In FileMaker 11 I now have to click on any new field twice to enter data, with lots fields & data this doubles the input time. I can't seem to find any setting that changes this back to allow random entry; Help this is a real pain!
