Invalid argument encountered when opening a file

When I updated to SW 2019, I discovered a "bug" if you will when opening files.

Typically I open a file by the following:

CTRL+O followed by navigating to the PDM directory or appropriate folder followed by typing the filename.

I usually scroll through the file names when I'm close to the file I need.

In previous versions of SW, a simple "Enter" would open the file.

In 2019, if I open a file this way, I encounter a SW Error Window, "An invalid argument was encountered."


A simple tab select resolves this, but it's frustrating lesson to learn.


Anyone know if there is a setting that drives this?
