Auto-complete frequently gets in the way of typing calculations. For instance, I type "or" and then return for a new line, and it changes my "or" to "EvaluationError ( expression )". Is there any way to disable this?
It is very helpful but it has started to get troublesome in v16.
Seems there is no way to disable.
You'd need type "esc" to close already selected list, or add space to no function match, then type return.
if you mean _or_ , where _ = space, then type it as such. After OR type a space and you'll be left with your or. Then type return.
It is clearly broken in 16. I demoed it for FMI tech support at DevCon.
WHY IS THIS STILL NOT FIXED? TSGal
This issue has been addressed in FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced.
Nope. Problem still exists.
Same keystroke, FileMaker 15:
Your issue looks different thing, that selection is not shortest nor exact match nor top value in the list. It looks fields have priority than custom functions.
This is a different issue than the original posting.
If your first name is "Ron", your issue has been reported. There is no further information at this time, so I have asked for an update. When I receive any information, I will let you know.
Our Development and Testing departments are aware of this issue. Starting with FileMaker 16, fields and tables are selected first instead of an exact match. Your post has now been attached to the original report. When more information becomes available, I will post again.
