Thank you for your post.
When you say "new text boxes", do you mean fields? Or, do you mean boxes? There is a difference. If you drag a field onto the layout and go to Browse Mode, you will be able to enter data into the field. If you create a Box using the box tool, you will then need to use the Text tool to enter text into the box. When you go into browse, the text and box become part of the layout, and you will be unable to change the contents unless you return to Layout mode.
Please let me know if you need clarification.
Thanks for responding so quickly :)
I meant to say fields, sorry about that.
Thanks for the clarification. I assumed as much, but I needed to be sure.
There is no limit to the number of fields you can have (limited only by disk space), so I'm not entirely sure what is happening.
Go into Manage Databases (or Define Fields - depending on your version of FileMaker Pro), and create a new field "TEXT" of type Text. Once created, return to Browse mode. If you have zero records, create a new record. Then, put your cursor in the field "TEXT" and type away. If this is working fine, then return to your previous field and see if you can enter information. If not, make sure the field is not a Calculation, Container, or Summary field.
Any additional information you can provide will help me narrow down the possible causes.
That worked! Yay!
Thanks so much!
