Entering Text Problem

I have many screens in my app with many fields containing drop-downs linked to a table (not local). When the user enters a field the drop-down displays. If she does want any of the drops downs she clicks in the field to enter the appropriate text. Sometimes the user is typing away entering data when they notice that nothing is being entered. They make sure that the cursor is blinking in the field before they start but sometimes it makes no difference.

I've asked this question several months ago a someone told me that this is a problem with FileMaker but has not been resolved yet.

Is there a fix for this or is it still being investigated?

My user has lots of fields to complete and this problem is really slowing her down. She has to click in another field and then click back into her original field and try again. Sometimes this takes 3 or more times to enter text in the original field.
