Thank you for your post.
At this time, when Layout Mode is invoked, the field tool will display fields from the current layout. Once a field is selected, any other layout you then edit will first display the fields from the original layout until changed again. It is not random. For instance, if you are in Table1 and invoke the field tool, fields from the current table (Table1) will display. If you then switch to a layout based on Table2, the field tool will continue to display the fields from Table1 until changed.
This occurs in both Mac OS X and Windows.
I have sent your post to Development and Testing departments for review. When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.
thanks for response.
Ok, I assumed that it is not completely random.
But most times it is more disturbing or misleading than helpful.
