Conditional Formatting w repeating field bug

Description of the issue

I reported this bug via the old bug form last year. Debate has been done regarding whether or not it is a "true bug" but from my stand point it it as it works with a modifiable field but does not with an unmodifiable field. Regardless, it is cumbersome that a refresh is required to get this to work. Here is the link to the entire thread as well as a sample file.    FileMaker Product(s) involvedFileMaker Pro/Advanced 9/10 Operating System(s) involvedAllDetailed description of the issueBasically, when using conditional formatting on repeating fields, on any other repetition other than the first, if the field is non-modifiable then the conditional formatting will not display until a refresh is performed. Exact steps to reproduce the issue1. Create field numfield and Msg field (which is a repeating field w/ 2 repetitions)2. Add conditional formatting with formula:    not IsEmpty ( table::Msg [2] ) on numfield3. Copy and Paste numfield4. Turn off entry into one of the numfield copies under Field Behavior5. Enter / Clear the second repetition of the Msg field:     table::Msg [2]6. You will notice that the non-enterable copy will not apply the conditional formatting. Expected ResultConditional format should display Actual ResultOnly enterable fields render properly Exact text of any error message(s) that appearedN/A  Any additional configuration information/troubleshooting that is relevant to the issueNone  Any workarounds that you have foundRefresh screen
