    Cursor position on Order Search screen

    Our staff wants the cursor to default to the "Enter Starting Point" field in the Order Search - Index List screen.

    Currently, it stays positioned on the Refresh Filter box -- which is useless, since you would *always* need to make a change in the search criteria before doing another Refresh Filter. (Otherwise, your search would get exactly the same results as you already have.)

    Our staff says that the cursor *did* default to this field at one time. [ <Jerry Specht > ]

    Answer from Ex Libris:

    Usually, the focus remains where it was left by the last action. This fact is in correspondence with Windows and GUI principles.

    For this certain case we would like to suggest two ways of workaround:
    1. Press Enter on the keyboard, in spite of Refresh filter button
    2. Press Alt+R on the keyboard
    As the result, a cursor remains in the Enter Starting Point.
