The only modifier key that works in Windows is Shift. I believe that the documentation indicates that other keys should work, but I have tested this a fair amount and only Shift works for me. I have heard from others that they get the same result. My testing was with FMP11, but I don't think anything has changed with FMP12.
Thanks for the reply.
I suspect your observation about shift is correct.
But, just to be clear, I have been clicking outside the $$variable and then dragging into it and it works.
However, neither this technique, or using the shift key work when a tab object is within a tab object.
In this case, the 2nd tab 'Candidate Fees' is selected and it seemingly impossible to select <<$$Progress>> .... No dragging will work. No shifting works... Locking the tabs and then dragging does not work. Is this by design? Or, is it a 'Windows thing?'

I don't know for sure, but would guess it is FileMaker on Windows. In my modifier key testing on FMP11, I never did anything with TAB controls.
