Hide formula becomes invisible after button is applied


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS-X

Description of the issue

If you create text object on a layout and assign it a formula to make it "hide" (new FM-13 feature) and then also make that text object into a button, the hide feature disappears but it remains assigned to the object, at least according to the little hide-badge.  But you can no longer edit the hide feature nor remove it, because it's invisible in the Inspector.

You can re-write the hide formula but it results in two hide-badges and if the two formulae disagree with each other then neither will work as expected

Steps to reproduce the problem

Make a text object
Assign it a hide formula
Assign it a button action

Expected result

The hide formula should remain visible in the inspector until/unless it is removed.

Actual result

It vanishes as soon as the text object is used as a button
