Summary

No more alpha-keystrokes when in menus

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11

Operating system version

OS X 10.6.x

Description of the issue

I used to use the page up, end and home keys to quickly find my way through the various menus in FMP - relationships menu in Portal Setup, Layout selection menu,  or the calculation dialog. I also sometimes use alpha characters to quickly go to a listing there or in other menus. All gone. Now when I try this, it simply closes the menu. The switch to Cocoa seems to have removed this feature.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Go to the Portal Setup dialog. Select the Relationship menu. Hit the Home or End key.

Expected result

Menu remains open and scrolls to top or bottom.

Actual result

Menu closes.

Workaround

Work less efficiently. Overbill clients as a result.
