A bug in hide conditions


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.8.5

Description of the issue

If I put a field on the layout, I choose to do nothing with the field (I don't associate any script step), then I write a formula in "hide conditions", then I choose a script step to associate with it, the formula in "hide conditions" disappear. The icon with the black eye is displayed, the formula is evaluated, but I cannot edit it.
To retrieve the formula I have to remove the script step and then it's accessible. I also can cut the formula, choose the script step and then paste it.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Add a field to the layout.
Set a formula in "hide conditions".
Associate a script step with the field.
The hide condition is blank, but the black eye is shown and the formula is evaluated.

Expected result

To always edit the hide condition.

Actual result

If I insert a hide condition before setting the script step, I cannot edit the formula until I remove the script step.
