Summary

Pointer focus when hovering over drop-down list is on layout or record behind it

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.03

Operating system version

Mac OS x 10.6.8

Description of the issue

After bringing up a drop-down list, if the the list extends over records in the body (list view) and you point at a list item in the drop-down window, the item itself doesn't highlight and the pointer focus appears to be on the items behind it:  e.g. a field in the body with an on-hover highlight state will highlight.  See attached screen shot (you can't see the mouse pointer, unfortunately, but it is pointing at the drop-down list items).

Steps to reproduce the problem

Switched the list to Pop-up:  worked fine (list items in the pop-up showed highlighting, items behind it didn't).  Switched back to drop-down, problem returned (list items did NOT highlight, but items behind it did).

Expected result

Highlighting would affect items in the drop-down list and the UI would not keep focus on the layout objects behind the list.
