If you script a card based on a layout in an external file, the card is not properly active. The data viewer reports the external layout name as the current window name, but you can't script the navigation to a named object on the card layout, or even go to next field. The user has to click in the card to make it proper active. Everything works as expected if the card layout is in the active file (even if it references an external file), but does not work if you specify a layout in the external file. Note that I'm creating the card with a GTRR, New Window, showing records in a related table in the external file.

How to replicate: See above

Workaround: None
