I have a portal with a few dropdown fields. My tab order specifies them in sequence. PRIOR to a couple weeks ago (±), I used to be able to do this: 1) go to a field in a similar record ("Rec x") in the portal; 2) place the cursor in the first of my sequential fields in "Rec y"; and then 3) repeatedly hit Cmd-' (apostrophe); and 4) bing, bing bing, all the corresponding values from Rec x would be copied to Rec y.
NOW, however, after my first Cmd-' , the cursor REMAINS in that first field (at the end of the copied text). It does NOT automatically tab to the next field. (A second Cmd-' yields a second copy into the same field, yielding something like "BasicBasic". Can someone give me back my bing bing bing?
When I use the MOUSE to select a value for the first field (instead of Cmd-'), the focus DOES automatically transfer to the 2nd field, with its value options dropped down.
(Irrelevant, I'd think, but just in case: The "2nd field" is actually 2 fields (one on top of the other): "subCat" and "id_activity," to allow for the dropdown list to appear as text and show text, but the bottom field records the numeric id. This technique may have a name, but I don't recall it.)
