Thank you for the post.
I submitted this as a feature request to Testing and Development. Additionally, I would encourage you to enter this as a suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:
These web form suggestions are monitored and read by our Development and Product Management departments and then discussed and considered for a future release. Although I could copy and paste your post into the web form, there are some questions asked that only you can answer.
Testing informed me that a script can be renamed via the following methods:
1. Right-click the script name in the script list > Click “Rename”
2. Right-click the script name in its tab > Click “Rename Script”
3. Double-click on the script name displayed on a tab to rename the script being displayed.
4. With the script window open or tab in focus > Click “Scripts” (menu) > Click “Rename Script”
However, currently in FileMaker Pro 14.0.1 (Advanced) no option exists for renaming a script by clicking the script name in the edit window and that remains open as a feature request.
Thank you for the suggestions TSFalcon.
However, the methods are all for inside the Script Workspace which was my point. When you're editing the layout and inside a menu, you don't even have access to the Script Workspace. The Workspace seems to be the only place where you can do *any* renaming which seems like a big design flaw. I'll do as you suggested and make it a feature request (or rather, a feature re-add since it was removed in FM14).
This is true especially since you can still "duplicate" a script in the "edit" environment but then not rename it. You're stuck with "old script name copy" and need to exit to a completely different environment (Script Workspace) just to edit the name? This is a very time consuming work around when editing existing buttons, script triggers, etc. on a layout. Hopefully the answer above from Testing doesn't mean they are not going to address this request? Edit Script should be able to fully edit the script as it did in previous versions, including the script name.
