Product and version

FileMaker Pro 11 (or prior) to 15.0.1

OS and version

Windows 7 (or prior) to 10




On Windows, when the user open a Drop down list, the use of down arrow key is selecting the second value, instead of the first value on a Mac. This make the selection of the first value more difficult on Windows.

How to replicate

Create a layout with a drop down, related to a value list that have multiple values

In Browse Mode on Windows, open the drop down and press the down arrow key

Note : the second value is selected

Repeat the same steps on a Mac

Note : the first value is selected


Workaround (if any)

On Windows, press first down arrow key and then, the up arrow key
