    Not possible to replace custom function on import



      Not possible to replace custom function on import


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      windows 7

      Description of the issue

      When I import a function(s) from another file I do not get the option to replace the function(s). Instead the function(s) is automatically renamed.
      When I remove the function(s) before import all references in scripts etc. are lost (because FM does not reference by name).

      Could you include the possibility to replace functions?

               Thank you for your post.

               At this time, FileMaker Pro will not overwrite existing functions as it may destroy existing data from the original function.
