Summary

No acceptable way to remove or disable green pie chart icon on toolbar

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0v3 advanced

Operating system version

XP professional service pack 3

Description of the issue

Removing the "Show Omitted Only" menu does not disable the green pie chart icon on the status toolbar that toggles between found set and omitted records. Setting the menu action to "Do Nothing" disables it, but that's hardly an acceptable workaround.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Make a new file and add a few records. In custom menus, edit Records Copy menu. Delete "Show Omitted Only" and "Show All Records". Change default menu set to Custom Menu Set 1.

Expected result

Green found set pie chart icon should be disabled.

Actual result

The icon still works.

Workaround

If you add "Show Omitted Only" back in and set Action to "Do Nothing", the icon becomes disabled. But having menus that do nothing is unacceptable. This may drive me to abandon the status toolbar altogether.
