Thank you for your post.
I have forwarded your entire post to our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) department so they are aware of this issue.
I was mistaken about the tooltip badge and the script trigger badge not showing up simultaneously on a field. I had inadvertently assigned a tooltip to a transparent object that was on top of the field instead. Thus, I couldn't see the script trigger badge underneath. My bad!
However, I still think the tooltip badge was easier to discern on a busy layout in FMP9, so that critique still stands. Thanks.
