    FileMaker 14 introduced the new calculation editing interface, with monospaced font, auto fill, etc., but there are a few calculation interfaces that still use the old interface:

     

    - Custom Functions

    - Data Viewer

     

    This new feature would bring the new calculation interface to all calculation dialog boxes. The older dialog boxes use variable-space fonts, which make the formatting of complex calculations for readability possible but kludgy, requiring the use of Opt-Tab to line up related portions of the calculation.
