    Can you post a screen shot?

    I can't. By the time I open the snipping tool, it is deselected. In other words, one must click away for it to be deselected. But let my try the screenshot thing in another way.

    Out network doesn't allow us to post files (the .png file the screenshot) outside of our network. :-(

    Are you referring to the first field on a form when in edit mode?

    I don't want that text to be pre-selected by QuickBase. Any ideas?

    There... Imagine that text within the description text box is selected.

    What browser are you using?

    Setting focus on the first input control is a convenience under the assumption that you would starting editing the first input control. You can turn it off using the IOL technique and code like this:
    setTimeout(function() {
      _fid_6.blur();
    }, 3000);
    A short timer is sufficient to delay the blur() event until QuickBase finishes building the page. There might be a more elegant way to do this but it is worth my time to investigate as I don't think this feature is all that important.

    Thanks for the idea. I'll take it from here and make it more generic.
