Description of the issue

FM Bug: "Go To Record" custom menu doesn't work when toolbar is locked & hidden

We create custom menus quite a bit in FileMaker Pro Advanced, but this feature hasn't been updated in years by FMI so there are still plenty of bugs with custom menus.

For example, one of our current problems is that when we want to place the "Go To Record" submenu into a custom menu, that submenu will ONLY work when the FileMaker status toolbar is either showing or unlocked.

But if the status toolbar is both hidden & locked, suddenly the "Go To Record" submenu no longer works. It is dimmed and inaccessible.

This is problematic because we ALWAYS LOCK & HIDE the status toolbar to prevent our users from getting to the toolbar.

Take a look at the attached screenshot. Very simple custom menu, right? But the "Go To Record" submenu doesn't work in any of our solutions, because in all of our solutions, we always lock & hide the status toolbar.

So, our request is to please fix the "Go To Record" submenu so that it will still work if we have hidden & locked the status toolbar.

Thanks,
Scott
