I cannot edit the "Hide object when" dialog box for some buttons.


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

I have made several buttons and given them conditions for hiding.  The eyeball icon is then placed on the field.  Later, when I try to edit the condition, the eyeball icon is still there, the object still hides like I told it to, but I cannot view the condition or edit it.  I also cannot delete the condition.  It is very frustrating.

Steps to reproduce the problem

The only thing that I did that may have been an anomaly was that I have a portal.  Inside the portal is six popovers.  Inside each popover is ten buttons with this hide object when condition.  Some of the popovers will show me the condition others will not.

Expected result

The ability to view and edit the condition.

Actual result

Inability to view or edit the condition.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message.


The only workaround I have found is to delete the item and re-add it.
