Popup menu multiple selection


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.3

Description of the issue

Popup menus no longer allow you to select multiple entries by holding the shift key.

Steps to reproduce the problem

A field with popup menu entry method selected and a value list to populate it.
Select one entry, then hold shift to select or deselect additional entries.
Works in every version I can remember, and now does not work in 11.0v2

Expected result

Selection of multiple value list entries.

Actual result

Only one selection allowed

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

no error messages

Configuration information

Mac OS 10.6.3
FileMaker Pro Advanced 11.0v2


no workarounds other than the obvious check box data entry, and in the case of long
value lists would render the layout that uses a popup to be reconfigured to use a check
box that would be too large to manage, and therefore render the layout useless
