SHIFT to open file with password promtp, when importing

Description of the issue

This one has been an annoyance for a while.  It took me quite some time to realise why I was being asked for a password every now and then. On a scripted import, covering mutliple files, even if Filemaker is not the current active application holding shift will force Filemaker to show the dialog asking for a password for the import files. For instance, Im importing from 20 different files, which can take some time, so I proceed to type a message on the forumif I hit shift at the same time as a file is being opened for import, Filemaker will silently sit behind the my current window waiting for a password.  The Shift modifier should only be active when FM is the active program.
