What is the context? Is this an empty field or is there data in the field. Is the field formatted to be right justified? In what version of FileMaker is this?
This is filemaker 12 pro. There is data in the field like a date or a number. When I go into the field even after the inputted the date for example tab out and go back with my mouse, the cursor is blinking on the right hand side which it never seemed to do. Then sometimes I see red dots in the field which I thought was odd as well. It is justified on the left. I did export data recently would that change/ affect current data?
Exporting data should not be a factor.
Is this the case on every record or just some records?
Could there be an OnObjectEnter trigger on the field?
Can you upload a screen shot that shows the "red dots"?
Screen shot with the cursor on the right hand side. will try to get the red dots
In the case shown here, what happens if you click to the left of the 1 and drag all the way to the right hand edge of the field? What highlights? Just the 15000 value or does empty space in the field also highlight?
Enter layout mode
select this field
then examine the tab settings in the inspector's appearance tab.
Is there a tab stop set? With a leading character (The red dots)?
