OnLayoutKeystroke and Navigation Key Failure

Using Filemaker 16 Pro on Windows 10 Pro PC, having an OnLayoutKeystroke script trigger of any kind set up (even when calling an empty script) will malfunction when placing focus on text filed and holding down left or right cursor keys to continuously move cursor, or holding down delete key or other non-alphanumeric keys to perform a repeating function.

 

It may not occur immediately, but continuous holding down of the delete key (for example) will cause FileMaker to start repeatedly inserting periods instead of deleting characters. Likewise, holding down left arrow key while in a text field will cause percent sign characters to be repeatedly inserted instead of cursor moving left.

 

Ay thoughts on what might be causing this?

 

Thanks
