Quick Tip:

Context Sensitive Menus
Control-Click on the Macintosh or a right mouse click on Windows will bring up a context-sensitive menu. This feature is most useful while in layout mode. For example, when a field is defined as a button, double-clicking on it will not bring up the Specify Field dialog. To get to this dialog easily, just use a control-click or a right mouse click.
