    Problem

     

    When saving a style as a new style the name field is empty. This leads developers to first choose Rename Style in order to copy the old style name first. This occasionally leads to the developer accidentally renaming the OLD style (which in FileMaker 13 broke its updatability)

     

    Idea

     

    The style name should be automatically suggested "<old style name> copy" - exactly like the Save As New Theme function does.
