Summary

Tabbing from one "Position" field to next on Inspector fails to select entire value on Windows

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0v2

Operating system version

Windows

Description of the issue

In layout mode, with an object selected, tabbing from one "Position" field to the next (e.g. from "Left" to "Top") in the Inspector ("Position" tab) does not select the entire existing value when using FMP 11 or FMP 11 Advanced on Windows Vista, XP, or Server 2003. (The entire value is selected in this situation on Mac, making it quick and easy to enter a new value.)

This is a change from behavior in FMP 10, wastes keystrokes, time, and mental energy, and is clearly different behavior between platforms.
