      Summary

      Layout: Pop-Up Menu Selection not possible with keyboard (Windows only)

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.0v2

      Operating system version

      all Windows versions

      Description of the issue

      A field is formatted to take input from a valuelist with two values, displaying the second value only. Control style is Pop-Up Menu.

      In Windows OS there is no way to move in the list via keyboard (exept for cursorkeys).

      Right should be like in
      MacOS: use alphabetic key to
      move to first word beginning
      with that key in list.

      Expected result

      Right should be like in
      MacOS: use alphabetic key to
      move to first word beginning
      with that key in list.

      Actual result

      see above

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Pressing any key other than up / down generates "boing!"-tone

      Workaround

      No workaround found. All other methods allow the user to enter the field for direct input, which should be avoided in some cases.
