Summary

FM 14: Scripts in open windows and Viewing in Script Workspace

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.0.1

Operating system version

OS X 10.10.3

Description of the issue

Whenever we open up a script in its own window, we lose the ability for FileMaker to show us precisely where that script is located in the Scripts Pane. Normally, FileMaker 14 gives us the ability to right-click on the name of a script -- AS LONG AS THAT SCRIPT IS OPENED IN A TAB -- and we can choose "Select In Scripts Pane". This is extremely useful, yet if a script is opened WITHIN ITS OWN WINDOW, we no longer have the ability to "Select In Scripts Pane". This would be an extremely helpful feature to have, because whenever you use the Script Debugger and you click on the "Edit Script" button within the Script Debugger, it will always open up the script within its own independent window. Would be nice to be able to show that script in the scripts pane. Would make it easier to debug scripts.
