When adding a button or button bar to a layout selecting the option of single step,  typing cl to get a "close" option the type ahead usually comes up with Insert Calculated Result.


To demonstrate this in FileMaker Pro Advanced 16 on OS X 10.12.5 do the following:


In layout mode:

  • Add a new button
  • Under Action:  Select "Single Step"
  • type cl      The option that appears is "Insert Calculated Result"   


Backspacing and typing "cl" again provides the correct list of:


close file

close popover

close window


Using the Windows version typing cl produces the correct list.
