How do I leave the "text insert mode" in the layout editor again?
None of the typical escape commands does work.
No menu tells me how to leave that mode.
No tool palette shows me how to change back to the select tool.
Whatever I do, wherever I click, FMP offers me to enter some text at that position.
I can drag, which does create a text area of that size. But there's nothing else I can do.
When I leave the Layout Editor to Browse Mode and come back to the editor, it's still acitivated. When I close and open the database, still the same.
I tried different simple things until the FMP app itself crashed.
if you "un-check" the "Always lock layout tools" in for FM settings you can toggle the last two tools you used by hitting "Enter" or in your case maybe something like "FN"-"Return" which substitutes "Enter" on a keyboard without num-block...
The majority of the keyboards on the market - particularly from PC vendors that add a Mac keyboard to their lineup (Logitech included) - don't understand that a RETURN key and and ENTER key produce different scan codes, and are used in many programs uniquely.
Fn-RETURN on "most" Mac keyboards produces an ENTER which is really useful in that the main keyboard RETURN key add a new line in a calc dialog, but the ENTER key closes that dialog by actuating the default OK button.
