OnObjectKeystroke issues with arrow keys

FileMaker Pro 15 Advanced v15.0.2.220 / FileMaker Pro 14 Advanced v14.0.5.0

Windows 10 Pro 64 bit



I have attached a demo file to allow you to check out an issue that one of our users found and pointed out to me.  After testing this on a few machines we found that it only happens on the FileMaker 15 machines and not the FileMaker 14 machines.  All computers are the same specs aside from the version of FileMaker.  There is an OnObjectKeystroke script trigger on the notes field in the portal.  The script just checks the keystroke and if it is the up arrow it goes to previous row and then goes to the notes field and if it the down arrow it goes to the next row and goes to the notes field.  If you press either of these slowly they work fine, but if you hold either of them or even the left and right arrows then occasionally it will enter a character into the notes field on whatever row you are currently on.  The characters that it enters are:


Up Arrow = &

Down Arrow = (

Left Arrow = %

Right Arrow = "



Does anyone know why this is or if there is a way to fix it?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.



Thank You,
