drop-down list doesn't auto-complete
I just upgraded from FMP 10 to 11. I have a drop-down list that I use to choose from a long list of records. The field is a combination of an ID#, name and birthdate. In FMP10, I could start to type the name and the list would automatically go to that first few letters I type, and I could choose from there.
In FMP11, I cannot type into that field at all. In the Inspector, the choice to allow auto-complete is greyed out. I cannot do any typing to narrow down my selection - and this list is 2800 records long, so scrolling is out of the question! How do I get the ability to choose the record the way I did in FMP10?
FileMaker broke that feature with the version 11 release:
