      Summary

      Cannot edit hide object attribute after making object a button

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13.03

      Operating system version

      OSX 10.9.4

      Description of the issue

      After making an object into a button in layout mode, you can no longer edit the hide attribute calculation in the inspector for that object.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a text object in layout mode.
      Add a hide object attribute (Example: 1)
      Go to Button Setup... and tie a script to the object.
      Try to edit the hide object attribute in inspector.

      Expected result

      Should be able to see the hide attribute in the inspector.

      Actual result

      Hide attribute is blank, but object still has "eye" icon, indicating the attribute still exists.

      Workaround

      Apply Hide Object attribute after creating the button.
      Also pressing the "ungroup" button removes the button and allows editing of the hide calculation again.
