I agree that's not expected behavior. I think the only work-around is to re-create the Go To Record submenu as a custom menu and use that. Not ideal - especially if you have no othe reason to use custom menus in the solution.
OOPS - Speaking before coffee. The custom menu doesn't allow the keyboard shortcut you want. Sorry; I could've sworn I'd done it that way in the past.

That's where I first picked up the anomilie - when I hid the status tool bar and did my own custom menus and found the ctrl +up/down didn't work.
It's just one of those totally unrelated behaviours that locking or unlocking the status bar affect the keyboard shortcuts for go to next/previous records.
I have two work arounds.
1. I still hide the status bar I don't lock it. Not ideal
2. I hide and lock the status bar and write another script - on layout keystroke, which picks up the ctrl+ up/down and unlocks the staus bar, goes to the next record, and then locks it again.
Memory catching up now. Here's something I posted a while back (was in v11, not sure if it's different in v12):
There was an oddity with the keyboard shortcuts on Mac v Windows, and another work-around: leave the toolbar unlocked but hijack the show toolbar command.
Unfortunately, the message seems to have been munged, with every reference to the command changed to a reference to a message reference.
Perhaps I'll have a chance to dig up the file and repost it later.
Thanks Debi for all the work you've done. It's reassuring that it's not just me missing the obviouse.
