Sometimes I'm typing and FM just up and decides to click off of the field I'm working on. Really annoying. Why does this happen?
do you have a script trigger in that field ? If so check the attached script to see if it brings focus somewhere else.
this happens in many, many fields, with and without scripts attached.
is there a chance that another user or some unrelated script is causing it somehow?
Another user can't act on the app you are running and a script has to be fired by a script trigger, it can't be fired by itself. Maybe there is the OnTimer script trigger is set. If you have FileMaker Pro Advanced, you may have a look at the script debugger.
What version of FMP/FMPA are you running, on what OS and version of that OS ?
Posting a small video showing the issue may help us finding what's wrong.
FM Pro Advanced 13.0v4
Windows 7 Pro SP1
Good call on the OnTimer script trigger. Some joker set a commit records command every 300 seconds. Disabled that and set up an idle timeout instead.
Oh ! He wanted to make sure data was saved... fine if that fits in the workflow, but not is someone would like to rollback instead.
I'm not a big fan of auto committing.
