Summary

FMPA 13.0v4 Script Debugger jumps to top of script after performing subscript

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v4

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.9.4

Description of the issue

While stepping through a script in the debugger by typing F5, after a Perform Script step is performed, the debugger jumps back to the top of the script and doesn't display the next script step. The next step is selected if the debugger is scrolled back to the position of the step. This happens if the entire script can't be seen within the debugger window.

It's problematic in two ways; you want to see what the next step is before performing it and it's unproductive having to scroll down the script to find the next step.

Typing F5 will jump to the step after the selected script step.

If the script in the Perform Script step has a breakpoint set, typing F5 will jump to the top of that script and not display the step with the breakpoint.

This didn't happen in 13.0v3.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Step through script in the debugger and step over a Perform Script step.

Expected result

The next script step is displayed in the debugger window

Actual result

The debugger scrolls to the top of the script and doesn't display the next step.
