Pop-up menu "type-ahead" not working on Windows

I have a FM12 solution that uses a value list on the JobTicket table in the client foreign key field. I'm populating that with a value list that is set to the contact primary key, also/only showing a field that concatenates Company & ClientName. So, the user grabs that pop-up and sees a big list of all the contacts. The user never sees the ID numbers.

 

This list is rather long (~2500 records).

On any of our Macs, the user can click into the field to get the pop-up menu, and type a few letters to jump to that spot in the alphabetical list. This at least gets them close, so they can pick the client they want.

On any of our Windows computers, typing does nothing. So, the user has to either scroll (painfully slow) or use the arrow to move down the list (not quite as painful).

 

Is this expected behavior, or am I missing something?

 

Thanks,

-Shawn
