      Summary

      FM 14: We have full help in scripts; now we need full help in calculations

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      14.0.1

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.10.3

      Description of the issue

      It's fantastic that the new FM 14 gives us easy access to the full help system from the right margin of any script. Click on any script step in the right margin and you can see the help paragraph at the bottom. Then, click on the question mark to be taken into the full help system for that particular script step. This is fantastic!! But this is noticeably absent from the calculation windows. Sure, the calculation windows will temporarily show you the help paragraph as you're typing a function, but there is no way to quickly jump into the full help system. We need the calculation windows to identically mirror the script windows. Click on a calculation function in the right margin, and the help paragraph should show up at the bottom of that margin. Then, there should be a question mark that you can click on to be taken into the full help system for that particular function. Help for calculations need to work in the exact same way that help for scripts works. Right now, calculations are getting shortchanged here, so FileMaker is making it more difficult to work with calculations than it is to work with scripts.
