I thought I'd share this so that if someone searches for an answer, they'll find it....

When in read mode, while the focus is on an embedded view, double-clicking elsewhere on the document will not switch the doc to read mode as expected. Unfortunately, if you don't have any buttons or hotspots that show up in read mode on your form, even if the embedded view is on another tab as part of a tabbed table, this means that double-clicking into edit mode will be disabled, though users can still type ctrl-e or use an action button, if provided.

The easy way around this is to create an invisible hotspot that doesn't do anything but intercept the default focus. Take a blank line somewhere on your form above the embedded view, add a few spaces, and create an action hotspot with a formula of...

REM "When in read mode, this hotspot is necessary or else the embedded views get default focus, and when that happens then users can't double-click on this form to switch it to edit mode.";

Note: Be sure turn off the hotspot's borders or else it might look a little silly. ;-)
