How to reduce Edit Popups in Edit Record

Postby Shepherd Jim » Thu Jul 16, 2009 9:15 am

I'm wondering if there's a way to "turn off" the "Edit Popup List" dropdowns associated with EVERY field name on the Edit Record .

Some fields lend themselves to having a popup list, but many do not.

Hi Jim,

Sorry for the delayed reply- was out of town on vacation the last few days. There is no way to turn off the Edit Popup item at this point. It's a great suggestion for a future version however, but will require a format change, so will have to wait for a major update!

Thanks Dave:

I do realize that this mostly my problem. I can never remember for which fields I may have actually set up popup choices.

But, it would be a good thing if it were possible to turn off the "triangles" and "edit?" popups -- less distracting, more efficient ...and especially if the user is not the designer and might be confused and/or led into maybe making some unwelcome changes to the setup.
