Found a rather annoying annomalie with the Quick Find in v12


When you perform a find using the quick search you are brought to the record you serached for. The contents of the quick find field are highlighted in blue.


Prior to v12, if after you performed your find using quick search and clicked on any area in the database, the quick find field would no longer be highlighted in blue.


In v12, the contents of the quick find field stay highlighted in blue.


Due to the contents still being highlighted, this give the end user the impression that the field is still active although it is not. I've had several users think it was still active and when they begin to type their criteria, they would be typing into an actual field unexpectedly or you will be presented with a window saying "Before typing, press Tab or click in a field, or choose the New Record menu command"


Obvioulsy the workaround is to manually re-highlight or clear the field prior to performing another find, but that kind of defeats the purpose and meaning of "Quick" find.
