    The Layout Object panel is a very helpful feature added by FileMaker. Still, I like to see some additional improvements.


    Adding icons/badges for

    • Conditional Formatting
    • Hide Object when … condition
    • Tool Tip

    In both cases the icon/badge will indicate that the object has a condition applied for this feature. And it would be very helpful, if hovering the mouse over these icons will also show the settings in a tool tip, as it is already done with the badges in the layout.


    This would be helpful, because when multiple objects are stacked, the badges in the layout does not clearly identify the related object. Sometimes clicking through multiple objects is required until you find the correct object.
