    Metadata Editor F8 shortcut key isn't always adding new field

    • Product: Alma


    In the MD Editor, using F8 to create a new field sometimes stops adding a new row.  This does not happen when selecting "Add Field" from the Edit menu in the Metadata editor.


    The F8 button will add a new field -- only if there are no other empty rows. Please SAVE the field, before clicking F8 again.

    Additional Information
