I will like to see restrictions by calculation at the field level, not just at the record level.
It would be useful to be able to control the View, Edit, Create, No Access via a calculation.
I agree. Although it could have a significant impact on the security model (which is basically unchanged since FMP7) which could lead to a different file format.
As an workable alternative I could also live with a layout-based calculation (via the inspector palette).
