The function keys don't seem to work.
I have an APR file which was created in SS97 and opening it in 9.8.1 seem to be just fine, except for the above problem.
I am in a form which contains a repeating panel.
Within the repeating panel is a field called Notes. (Nothing to do with Lotus Notes, just a coincidence)
Notes is a Text field of length 200
With any version of Approach, while in Browse, I can click on the Notes field and enter anything I like.
In the old SS97 version, I could also press F2 and have the underlying macro enter "99 DAYS ... 1ST LIFETIME" into the Notes field.
Now with 9.8.1, pressing F2 does nothing for me in the Notes field. I see Approach shudder a bit when I press F2, as if something is happening, but nothing is entered into the Notes field.
In 9.8.1, if I click on Edit, Script & Macros, Macros, I can still see the macro (named FIRST LIFETIME). Clicking on Edit, I can see that the function key is F2 and the macro command is
"Send Key" and the keystrokes are "99 days ... 1st lifetime".
So nothing has changed in SS97 and SS 9.8.1.
Other macros WITHOUT a function key are working just fine.
For example, I have an OPEN macro which takes me to where I wish to start each time I open this APR file.
