Summary

No way to change script name in "Edit Script" or "Specify Script"

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.0.1

Operating system version

Windows 8.1 64bit

Description of the issue

In FM12 you were able to rename a script inside the script editing window and when selecting the script beforehand. I can't find any way to do this anymore in FM14 and even when duplicating a script in the Specify Script window, I can't even rename that. This seems like an oversight - please add the ability to rename the script once more. Having to go to the Script Workspace each time is really not efficient or productive.

I posted about this on the forum thinking I was overlooking something but apparently this is a result of the new script interface and many if not everyone who posted wants this back as well.
