Summary

Value List - Sort by 2nd Field - drop down lists do not move down list to items based on characters typed

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11

Operating system version

osx 10.6.7

Description of the issue

Value List - Sort by 2nd Field - drop down lists do not move down list to items based on characters typed - typing should move down the list to the item you are spelling - it moves based on the 1st field even if sort by 2nd field is selected

Steps to reproduce the problem

make a value list using 2 fields based on a relationship - sorted by second field - put the value list into a field using drop down list - try typing to select an item on the list - typing selects items based on field 1 - if sort by field 2 is selected typing should select items based on field 2

Expected result

if sort by field 2 is selected typing should select items based on field 2

Actual result

typing selects items based on field 1

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

none

Workaround

scroll down the list instead of going directly to the item you want - cumbersome on long lists
