Summary

"Hide object when" calculation disappears and can not be changed

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13 Advanced

Operating system version

OS X 10.9

Description of the issue

I have used the "Hide object when" feature of FM 13 on several objects. Later, the calculation will no longer appear in the inspector, but the calculation will still apply and the 'eye' still appears on the object in layout mode. I've tried entering a new calculation, but the original calculation will still apply instead of the new one.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Can not reproduce the problem consistently. It has happened to several objects of different types in different databases and layouts.

Expected result

The calculation should remain visible, editable and removable in inspector.

Workaround

Remove the object and add it again.
