    Double Click to Quick Find

    MattLeach

      Ever since moving to v12 i have had an issue with searching and wanted to see if anyone else was having the issue.

       

      The scenario is that i have multiple databases hosted on FMSA12 being accessed by Win 7 Pro machines running FMPA12. This only appears to happen when 2 databases are open at the same time (or windows).

       

      Lets say i have DB1 and DB2 open. I have a 24 inch monitor so the databases are side by side. DB1 is the active window.

       

      Im working in DB1 and i need to switch over to DB2 to find a record. I click on the window for DB2 to make it active, i then click in the quick find box at the top right and being to enter my criteria. Instead of being able to type, i am prompted with a window "Before typing, press Tab or click in a field, or choose the NEw Record menu command."

       

      Now if i perform those same steps (click window to make active, click in search box) but before typing i click in the search box again (basically double clicking the box), i am then able to enter my search criteria.

       

      This is on top of another issue that we have had with the search box which was acknowledged by FileMaker: http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/a405733d14

       

      Wanted to see if this was an issue with anyone else before i reprted it.

       

      Thanks
