Pop Up Menu type ahead in windows client


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

On the MAC version and IWP on either platform, you can type ahead in a popup menu to go to one of the options. In the window version for FM PRO 12, it just beeps. This is surely a bug?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Add a popup menu with a value list containing about 10 values
Go to the layout, click the list and try typing in one of the values. On MAC and IWP it goes to the right place, on Windows it beeps

Expected result

It should go to the right value in the list

Actual result

It just beeps on windows and doesnt go anywhere. You can click to select

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No message


It kind of works with a drop down list, BUT that doesnt help with relational key / value pairs
