    Hi,

     

    as you know unstored calc are slow and if you have some in a calc you've to be very careful about how they're used, as Filemaker unfortunately lacks both In calculation cache, and in record caching Record calculation fields cache

     

    but to properly handle them, you have to recognize them, so I propose that in every calc windows (field editing, data viewer, custom function definition…), Filemaker would color unstored fields automatically so one could easily spot them.
