Summary

Undesired behavior: Drop-down field hangs when using script triggers

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FMPA 11v2

Operating system version

XP or OSX

Description of the issue

If I DO NOT set Tab Order: When using OnObjectSave script trigger in a field with drop-down list, it is impossible to go to another object on the same layout with script steps like Go to Field or any other step. The drop-down list just hangs until you click outside of the field.
Actually it would be natural to have a script step that deselected any object, maybe Commit Record should do that.

Workaround

Use Tab Order for this field and another object
