Type Ahead in the new 2011 ACT for workgroups

Our company was using 2008 Act & recently upgraded to 2011 for 20 users.  When doing a lookup in the detail page of one of the fields, the type ahead feature would auto fill by typing 1 or more of the first letters, now we have to use the mouse to select form the drop down list which takes a lot longer.

 

Also, in sort, we could type in the first letter or more until the right selection came up, now when we type M  for "Market" it only shows 1 item that starts with an M, so it forces us to use the mouse to select.

 

Very dissapointed to spend $5,000 for an upgrade only to want our old back. Would like to hear if these functions have been deleted or is there a fix or addons to reuturn to our old functions.

Yeah, that's a common complaint...one that we have also. Sorry I can't be of any help with your actual problems, we're still working through some of our own also.
