Tab editing

Tab editing


FileMaker Pro


FM Pro 11 v03

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

When I attempt to edit my tab order, I am unable to save the changes or even to escape from the layout screen without closing down FM altogether.
"Filemaker pro 11; the missing manual, p. 324 instructs the user in step 3 to "Click OK in the 'Set Tab Order window'." There is no "Set Tab Order" window available when I am in the tab editing mode.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Switch from browse to layout mode
2. Choose the Layout tab at the top of the screen
3. Select "Set Tab Order" and see arrow outlines appear at each field.
4. Make changes as needed to the numbers in the arrow outlines.
5. Look around the screen -- there is no way to save the work, nor is there any way to leave the layout mode. I am locked out of all FM controls except for being able to close down FM entirely.

Expected result

I need to be able to control the tab function and cannot do so in this version of FM 11

Actual result

lockup within my application
