Swipe to next/previous record very difficult -- is it me?

Post

     Hi

     it's a very good thing to have this swipe option, where the user swipes with two fingers across the screen to advance to the next/previous record.

     However, FileMaker's implementation seems to be quite difficult to do, because the swipe must be exactly horizontal. If its only a little bit diagonal, it won't work. To be exactly horizontal is quite difficult to achieve, especially when user is familiar with similar swipe gestures in other apps. There, the swipe angle doesn't matter.

     Furthermore, swiping is something that is caught within the FileMaker app itself and not passed down to the developer to act upon. So there doesn't seem to be a way to change the behavior?

     How do you handle this?
