Tab ordering with pop up menus- FM Go 15

Hello. Since FM13Go has finally been pulled from the App store, we are finally dealing with an issue that we'd manage to ignore for the past two years. We use popup menus and tab ordering to advance through fields when entering records in portals. When FMGo14 came out (and the issue persists with FMGo15), it no longer automatically advances you with tab ordering through the fields with popup menus. A script that is triggered when the object is modified- "Go To Next Field"- doesn't actually send you to the next field. In fact, the existing field stays active after you make a selection. Even if we write specific scripts that are triggered when the object is modified, to go to a SPECIFIC field, it doesn't work. It doesn't advance you. Is there something that has changed with how scripts are triggered? Is it that the field actually isn't being modified?

 

Changing our pop-up menus to drop down lists does allow the GoToNextField step to work, but that really compromises the user experience in our interface because some critical elements at the bottom of the interface are covered by the keyboard (which isn't necessary when selecting from a drop down list).

 

Has anyone figured out a workaround for this? We really just need the tab ordering behavior to remain as it was in 13Go.
