Focus Changes to Different Person after Tag Entry

Recommended Posts

I've found for the last few days that when I enter a Tag for the current focus person, when I close the Tag Entry Screen the focus shifts to a different person. It seems to be one person for a while, then a different one. Then in one case it didn't shift the focus, but when I tried to enter a new tag the ID# in the new Tag was that of the person it had been shifting to, not the person displayed as current focus person.

Re-indexing hasn't helped.

Is there a known fix for this?

This is the "navigation" issue that was supposedly fixed many years ago.

I don't have any ideas other than trying a clean install.

Thanks, Jim.

I closed and re-opened and it seemed to fix it so far. But I'm pretty sure I did that a few days ago and it came back. If it does again I'll try the re-install.

This «navigation» issue also happens in my project from time to time. It is a a kind of unreproduceable bug. I never found out the situation that causes this unexpected jump to a different person. Luckily, the changes made to the original person are not lost after the jump. The only point I noticed is that the person appearing after the jump has the the same first as well as family name.

Might be enough, but for some people that did not work.  Many seemed to need to force the presence of at least two or three valid entries to prevent the bug from reoccuring.  And you can do that by just going to a couple of people by ID without clearing the history.  Seems simpler.
