      Summary

      Quick Search Always highlighted

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      v12

      Operating system version

      Win 7 Pro

      Description of the issue

      When you perform a find using the quick search you are brought to the record you serached for. The contents of the quick find field are highlighted in blue.

      Prior to v12, if after you performed your find using quick search and clicked on any area in the database, the quick find field would no longer be highlighted in blue.

      In v12, the contents of the quick find field stay highlighted in blue.

      Due to the contents still being highlighted, this give the end user the impression that the field is still active although it is not. I've had several users think it was still active and when they begin to type their criteria, they would be typing into an actual field unexpectedly or you will be presented with a window saying "Before typing, press Tab or click in a field, or choose the New Record menu command"

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      enter criteria into quick find box.
      perform the search.
      click anywhere outside of quick find box.

      Expected result

      Expected result would be for the contents of the quick find field to no longer be highlighted.

      Actual result

      the contents of the field remain highlighted.

      Workaround

      You have to manually re-highlight the content in the quick search box, then enter your cirteria
