Hey Guys -

We are really struggling with this new standard field renderer that displays a blank field w/up and down arrows for number fields (in edit mode).

Many of our users are accidentally changing values because they are scrolling up and down on the page and occasionally scroll over a number field in edit mode.

Also, a few of our users (myself included) are feeling like this field renderer challenges our short term memory - as the field value disappears when you enter into edit mode. Was it $2,000 already? or did I click on it so I could change it to $2,000? Aghhh now I have to save/cancel - go back and look, change field to edit mode again... etc. etc.

I can see how some people might find this type of field renderer neat in a few situations - but it is never useful for us and is causing us problems.

I think this was fixed in a recent nightly build, but I will wait for a developer to confirm if I'm correct.

Hi Kaede,

Ken is correct, we have rolled back this change, if you install version 3.7 from skuidify.com/SkuidReleases, the up/down arrows go away, and there are no plans to bring them back.
