      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
