Bug in software - Windows 10 field selection Manage Database

Hi,

 

Product and Version

FileMaker Pro 16.04.403

 

OS and Version

Windows 10 Pro 10.0.16299

 

Hardware

Windows Custom PC

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Six-Core Processor

16Gb Memory

 

Description / How to replicate

When in the manage database window, if I go into the fields window and then click my mouse into a field. If I then try to use the up and down arrows to move up and down through the fields, it does not work - it takes me out of the field selection window. This behaviour is not seen in the tables window of manage database. This behaviour is also not seen in the Mac version (which I have recently come from)

 

Workaround

Just use the mouse to select the field / fields of interest, or if once you have clicked on one of the fields, and then you press the 'PgUp' key on the keyboard, it then 'activates' the fields window and allows you to use the up and down arrows. If you click out of it and back in again, the up and down arrows return to the previous unexpected behaviour.

 

Please see this post for further background on this one.
