SAP GUI 7.2 Field Focus

After updating to SAP GUI 7.20 I noticed that now the field focus behaves differently.

In the previous version when I typed something on a field and pressed ENTER the focus would remain on that same field, now in the newer version the focus always goes to the top field of the transaction

Is there a way to "remove" this behaviour? In my case since my work has a lot of trial and error to fill the fields this behaviour is becoming really an annoyance

    Click top left side of SAP Log on status bar, select option.

    Here click on "interaction design", again select the 'Keyboard Setting' un-check automatic move focus to next input field... and also test other options.

    Hi

    That didn't work.. Also I checked around with other options and still the same behaviour

    Note that this only happens on certain fields/transactions.

    Also, If i change the theme from Signature to any other theme.. this behaviour is gone and it starts working properly again!

    Thanks for your help

    Thanks for your fast answer

    Unfortunately the patch also didn't solve the problem

    I'll try to describe how this is happening

    I enter a transaction with several fields. I input data on the first, press tab, insert data on the second, press tab and finally I insert data on the third. On the third field I press enter in order for the transaction to "receive" the data and fill the remaining fields automatically.

    In the past when I pressed Enter the cursor would stay on the exact field it was, on the third. Also, If i had typed the data on the third field and then moved the cursor to the middle of this field (for example on the 6th character out of 12) when I pressed enter the cursor would remaing on that exact same position

    What is happening now is that when I press enter the cursor goes back to the first field

    I need it to NOT make this because this third field can end in, for example, 641, 642, 643, 644, etc, and for each Enter that I do I only need to change one number on that field. The cursor going again to the top is really not helping!

    Hope I described it well enough

    Thanks again

    EDIT:

    On my previous reply:

    "Also, If i change the theme from Signature to any other theme.. this behaviour is gone and it starts working properly again!"

    Nevermind this, I re-tried this and it's not working as on 7.1 with every theme
