While we're talking about bugs, I found that you cannot change the field property "TAB on Return" from the multi line msg box. Maybe from the single line too, but I didn't try that one. I had hundreds of fields for which I wanted that property changed. Ended up doing them one at a time. I was able to change some of the other properties using the msg box.
