Summary

UI Requires Two Clicks from an Active Drop-Down List to the Next Field

Description of the issue

FileMaker Product(s) involved:FileMaker Pro 11.0v1 Operating System(s) involved:Mac 10.5.8, Mac 10.6.3 Detailed description of the issue:Since upgrading to FileMaker Pro 11 from 10, I have noticed users have to click twice when going from a field with a displayed (active) drop-down list to the next field.  In FileMaker Pro 10 and previous versions, a user only need click once to proceed to the target field. This issue happens in Browse and Find Modes. Exact steps to reproduce the issue:1.  Create a database with two fields in the default table (e.g. fields = "Product Name" & "Color")2.  In Layout Mode, add a value list with drop-down to the "Color" field (e.g. values = "yellow", "blue", "red")3.  In Browse Mode, Form View, add a new record and populate both fields4.  Commit the record5.  Click into the field with the drop-down list (e.g. "Color") so the drop-down list shows its values 6.  Now, click on the other field (e.g. "Product Name"); the first click dismisses the drop-down list but keeps focus on its field; it takes another click on the target field (e.g. "Product Name") to select that field Expected Result:As with previous versions of FileMaker Pro, the user interface should require only one click to navigate from an active drop-down list to the next field a user clicks on. Actual Result:The user interface currently requires a user to click twice to navigate from an active drop-down list to the next field. Exact text of any error message(s) that appeared:N/A Any additional configuration information/troubleshooting that is relevant to the issue:N/A Any workarounds that you have found:None that I know of.
