FIlemaker Go - Drop Down List Window Control

I have a database that I open using FM GO. I have multiple fields for which I created drop down lists. I have set up the tab control, so that way it is easier for users to navigate through the fields. The problem I have is that when a user enters a field, the drop down list opens automatically (this is fine), but when it opens, it sometimes blocks the label name of the particular field. Is there a way to control in which direction the drop down list opens, specifically  in FM GO 13?

no, direction cannot be controlled.
can you post a screen shot to see your screen layout ? (using the built in function on the iOS device : press the sleep / wake button and home buttons simultaneously. The screen is captured into your photo library. )
