FileMaker, Inc. has recently released new v2 updaters for FileMaker Pro 8.0.
* Scripts that navigate to fields (for example Go to Next Field) can now enter fields that have Allow field to be entered disabled in Field Behavior options. - [ed] A good fix for looping scripts that cycle through fields.
* Fields that have auto-entered calculations depending on other fields no longer rely on field order creation for consistent results. - [ed] Somewhat obscure but you'll know if you've been affected by it in the past.
* The default file option for data entry has been changed from Ask whenever settings are different to Always use current system settings. - [ed] A better choice since most users are familiar with date/time/number settings in their own locale.
* Field focus is now retained for the last active field after an unsuccessful find is performed. - [ed] This will be a nice time saver when doing successive searches.
There are a number of other fixes that you can read about on the updater web page.
