Summary

Placeholder Text interferes with Conditional Formatting IsEmpty(Self)

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.0.1

Operating system version

10.9x

Description of the issue

If you're using the placeholder text and attempt to do conditional formatting using IsEmpty to fill the field with a color doesn't work. As soon as the placeholder is removed, the conditional formatting works.
If you're using placeholders, I would think IsEmpty would need to work as it always has.

Expected result

Conditional formatting should work

Actual result

Conditional formatting doesn't work when using placeholder text.
