Summary

Selecting Tables in Specify Fields in Layout Mode

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v2

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.7.4

Description of the issue

An annoyance that hasn't been fixed in FileMaker 12.

Go to layout mode and add a new field - the default TO is the context of the current layout.

Press a letter to jump to another TO and it always jumps to the first occurrence in the non-related TOs, never the first occurrence of the related TOs, which in 99% of cases is what is needed - when would you ever want to put an unrelated non-global field on a layout?

When you have hundreds of TOs this seriously hits productivity.
