AppleScript cannot select a script in the Script Workspace

Summary

AppleScript cannot select a script in the Script Workspace

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.0.1

Operating system version

10.10.4

Description of the issue

In FileMaker 13, this line of AppleScript code would select a script in the Manage Scripts dialog:
select row 1 of outline 1 of scroll area 1 of window 1

But the equivalent command in FM14, does not successfully select the script:
select row 1 of outline 1 of scroll area 1 of splitter group 1 of window 1

The script looks like it is selected, but it doesn't really select the script so that I can paste a new script via the clipboard, so that the script will appear above it in the list.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Run the script in Script Debugger, or via a test harness LiveCode stack file.

Expected result

The script would be highlighted, and seen as being selected by FileMaker.

Actual result

The script is partly selected (changes to a darker color), but it is not the darker blue color indicating that it is seen as selected by FileMaker. It only turns fully dark blue when a user actually clicks on the script manually in the list.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message, but FM beeps when I try to paste a script via the clipboard.

Configuration information

MacOSX 10.10.4

Workaround

I have to prompt my users to click the 1st script in the list manually, then my automated processing can process all of the rest of the scripts.
