      Summary

      Go to object in FMP 12 with overlapping fields is not working like in FMP 11

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      OSX

      Description of the issue

      In FMP 11 I've designed many layouts with two overlapping fields, and in front a transparent button to bring the user to the last field for editing (and is an important functionality in the design of the solution).
      In FMP12 I click the button, the active field is the right one (as I can verify using the get(activeFieldName) function) I can type in it but the field is hidden (you don't see what you are typing).

      I've noticed that the problem may occur when the go to object script step try to bring the user in the target field but, even if is not active from the perception of the user, is already the active field.

      More details:
      Using the go to object script step, I end up always in the right field.
      The first (the frontmost) object is the button fill = none
      The second object is a calculated field fill = solid color
      The third is the field for data entry fill = none, conditional formatting, script trigger on object enter and object modify  (the target of the go to object script step).
      (the active field is the target field, but the cursor is not blinking)
