Did multi-user processing change?

Hello,

 

We're working on an internal system with FileMaker 13. Our last project was in FM12. We're seeing different behavior with multi-user processing. In earlier versions, we'd see this behavior:

 

User A would start editing a field value.

As soon as User B moved the insertion point into that field, they would get a message indicating the record was locked.

 

With FM 13, User B is only notified that the field was locked if they attempt to change the field's value at the exact same time that User A is changing the field's value. The locking doesn't seem to be as strict as it was before.

 

Is this a known change in behavior? Is there some way to control how strict FileMaker is with its lock warnings?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.
