Summary

Records no longer commit when changing files like they did in v6

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0v3

Operating system version

OSX.6, Windows7

Description of the issue

Before upgrading from V6, our users insist that clicking on a FM window in a different file committed the record being left.  FM 11 no longer does this, and our people are complaining that they are being locked out of records because someone else had opened that record, then had left that file to work on another, expecting the first file to be freed.  I tried putting commit in a OnLayoutExit script trigger, but FM doesn't consider the Layout to be left, just because you went to a different file.  Is there any other way to force a commit when changing files?
